Welcome to Mercer Street Friends
Mercer Street Friends is a Quaker-affiliated, nonsectarian human care organization providing compassionate and practical solutions to the problems of poverty and health. We serve more than 20,000 people a year from seven locations and 11 program sites, including the historic original location, a former Friends meeting house in the Mill Hill section of Trenton. Our programs serve infants, children, youth, parents and adults, and the disabled and elderly.
With a budget of over 10 million in fiscal 2011-2012, over 100 employees and more than 500 dedicated volunteers, Mercer Street Friends has been building hopeful futures in the Greater Trenton area and Mercer County since 1958. The programs of Mercer Street Friends are funded by a combination of private donations, government funds, foundation grants and user fees.
Summer Pre-School Program Reinstated
Mercer Street Friends Pre-School will be open this summer!
Closed all last summer due to government funding cuts, the Pre-school will be open during July and August thanks to the generous support of our donors.
