Providing Hope & Preserving Dignity
Emergency Assistance

The Emergency Assistance program provides emergency food to almost 8,000 families per year, feeding over 17,000 household members. Not only are some of our clients homeless, but our low-income clients also include a significant number of disabled and/or aged persons living on fixed incomes. Clients are referred to this program by numerous Mercer County agencies. Our staff assesses the needs of the entire family. Five days a week we distribute bags of food, according to family size.

Home Health Nursing

Mount Carmel Guild’s Home Nursing Program assists low-income, frail individuals aged 60 years and over with many economic, medical, and social needs.  Our program provides quality, long-term, home-based nursing care for the medically needy and economically disadvantaged older individuals in Mercer County. Our patients require on-going care not covered by their Medicare benefits and need assistance with managing geriatric ailments such as diabetes, hypertension, dementia and cardiopulmonary diseases. They may be ambulatory with canes or walkers or in wheelchairs. Our objectives are to increase the medical stability and safety of patients, so they may continue to age in place independently with grace and dignity and avoid institutionalization.
