Welcome to Mercy Learning Center
A Literacy Center for Women
Mercy Learning Center of Bridgeport, Inc. provides basic literacy and life skills training to low-income women using a holistic approach within a compassionate, supportive environment. All women are welcome without regard for race, religion, color, creed, sexual orientation or national origin.
1987, Mercy Learning Center has provided basic literacy
and life skills to low-income women in the greater Bridgeport
area. As the motto of Mercy Learning Center, "Educate
a woman...Educate a family," clearly demonstrates, the
mission of the Center is to bring about a positive change
to the problem of illiteracy; specifically, to provide
basic literacy and life skills training using a "holistic"
approach within a compassionate, supportive community.
Center's programs focus on empowering, and providing
dignity, economic self-sufficiency and hope to the most
vulnerable members of society. By educating these women,
Mercy Learning Center provides critical training to
help functionally illiterate women improve their skills
and earning potential, creating a more hopeful future
for themselves and their children.
