Thanks to dear friends of the Home Peter and Mimi O’Brien, Mercy Home has become is a little bit more homey and inviting for our children.
The couple gave gifts of a Celtic cross and a Japanese red maple tree to adorn our West Loop Campus, and help our young people feel more at home.
Longtime supporters of our mission, the O’Briens partnered with Mercy Home to end the stigma of mental illness. Mr. O’Brien is a dedicated member of the Kennedy Forum of Illinois, an organization dedicated to improving the lives of those struggling with mental health.
They have also held our annual Danny Boy singing competition as well as the Irish Cheesecake Baking competition at the O’Brien’s restaurant in Chicago’s Old Town neighborhood.
