The MercyWorks program offers a diverse group of highly motivated women and men – who are inspired by the Gospel call to faith and justice and desire to make a difference in the lives of hurting children – a unique opportunity to gain professional experience while growing spiritually, personally and professionally.
If you have a calling to share your unique gifts with a child, to live simply in a faith-based community of diverse volunteers, and can dedicate a year to service, we invite you to look closer at the MercyWorks program at Mercy Home for Boys & Girls.
Volunteers make a one year commitment to work with the children at Mercy Home and devote themselves to a process of building community and living in simplicity. They also commit to growing in their understanding of social justice and spirituality through prayer and reflection.
MercyWorks volunteers serve 40 hours a week and work alongside our paid staff to mentor and guide the youth of Mercy Home. Several volunteers work as Youth Care Workers, while others serve as Admissions Case Managers, School Resource Coordinators, AfterCare Care Managers and After School Program Coordinators.
MercyWorks volunteers reflect on what their volunteer journey has meant to them.
