Mercy Center for Women renovates former Holy Rosary School into two-bedroom apartments
The Mercy Center for Women is seeking to receive some of the federal funding allocated to Erie County as part of the US bailout.
The Mercy Center for Women is renovating the former Holy Rosary School into 13 two-bedroom apartments. These apartments will be used as housing for low-income families.
State officials Pat Harkins and Bob Merski toured the building to learn more about how it will help affordable housing families in Erie County.
Jennie Hagerty, executive director of the Mercy Center for Women, says these federal dollars could help raise women in times of need.
“It will serve low-income women and children fleeing domestic violence, homelessness and substance abuse. Our vision and our hope is that whether it is the county or the city, we can take advantage of these American rescue funds and this funding to provide a better future for tomorrow. Hagerty said.
The building will also include space for the center’s community partners: AHN Saint Vincent and Safe Harbor Behavioral Health.
