House of Mercy Homeless Center is pleased to welcome Beth Pierce as the new operations coordinator.
Pierce retired from Mercyhealth in January after 21 years of service in human resources. During that time, she was also an overnight volunteer at the House of Mercy. In her new role, Pierce will oversee the day-to-day operations at the homeless center, help to intake new residents, train and work with volunteers and participate in community outreach.
“Volunteering at the House of Mercy was very fulfilling. After retirement, I wanted to give back to the community and was elated to see this position was available,” Pierce said.
Pierce will work alongside Chad Salmon, manager. “I’m excited to welcome Beth to the House of Mercy team and look forward to working with her to ensure our community members receive the services and assistance they need,” Salmon said.
The House of Mercy is seeking volunteers to work a few hours once or twice per month. Volunteer duties include welcoming residents, answering phones and light cleaning. Visit mercyhealthsystem.org/volunteers or call (608) 756-6739 to learn more.
