Mercy’s community development ministries are committed to the pursuit of social justice and human development in the community.
The work of transforming human lives and communities by the light of the gospel is achieved through Mercy’s core values.
Te aroha ki te rawakore, the value of reaching out to the poor and vulnerable finds a particular expression today in community development, with a strong emphasis on programmes of empowerment, personal and professional advancement and social advocacy.
A wide range of services is provided in consultation with Māori, other ethnic groups and community agencies.
