Your support of Mercy Home is more critical today than ever before

Each year, more and more children need care outside of their own homes simply to survive. Many no longer have a place that they can call home. At the same time, funding for not-for-profits that can provide children in need with a safe place to live is getting more and more scarce. That’s why your support of Mercy Home is more critical today than ever before.

We provide a home

Most of us grew up in a safe and stable home where we had shelter, food, clothing, and safety. But a home provides more than just these basics. A home offers us love, laughter, and belonging. A home promises nurturing and growth. A home is where we are seen and heard.

Mercy Home for Boys & Girls offers kid a real home. A place where they can grow into successful men and women who will one day create loving homes for their own families.

As a Catholic children’s charity based in Chicago, we’re dedicated to changing the future for the boys and girls, ages of 9-21, who turn to us for help in their most critical hour.

We save young lives

Mercy Home gives young people the means for personal, academic and vocational growth. We also assist hundreds more by connecting them to a vast network of accredited professional service-agencies throughout the metropolitan Chicago area. We partner with families to promote healing. We are committed to raising the public’s awareness about children in need.
