Girls Campus

Girls Campus

Nestled on a hill in Chicago’s south-side Beverly neighborhood, Mercy Home’s Girls Campus offers a cozy, tranquil setting for our young women to call home. Opened in 1987, part of the Girls Campus is the former Walgreen family mansion.

The campus features the Marie Noha Craft Cottage, which is a popular spot for the girls to make arts and crafts, a new learning center to offer resources for school work, the Speh Fitness Center and in the warmer months the grounds are lush with gardens and a fountain.

The Girls Campus features dormitory-style housing in four homes, which are organized by age. By sharing a room, the young women learn the core values of respect, responsibility, trust, honesty and caring. The girls eat their meals family style, strenghthening the shared experience of sisterhood for each young woman.

The four homes on the Girls Campus are:

Seton Home 
10 girls 
Ages 11-14

Walgreen Home
12 girls 
Ages 14-17

Couderc Home 
12 young women
