For 97 years, Mount Carmel Guild has been serving the people of Mercer County. Founded in 1920, one of the Guild's first services was an emergency food pantry, which has operated continuously ever since. In 1941, four Sisters of the Congregation of the Holy Infancy of Jesus began a vising nurse service branch for those unable to pay for private care. Today our home health nursing program provides free nursing care to allow older individuals to age comfortably in their own homes. The Guild's mission is to provide hope and preserve dignity in our community as we feed the hungry and care for the elderly through home nursing care.
