MercyFirst

Founded as sister orphanages in 1894 by the Sisters of Mercy, St. Mary’s of the Angels Home in Syosset and Angel Guardian Home in Brooklyn, MercyFirst today offers an integrated continuum of care for children in need, from birth through adolescence, including children who have been abused and neglected; youth with serious emotional problems; teenagers and young adults who are without family; and families coping with the stress and pressures of poverty, domestic violence, mental illness, and substance abuse.
