We Know Youth Violence is on the Rise

We Know Youth Violence is on the Rise

We sat down with Emily Neal, L.C.S.W. and Clinical Director for Mercy Home for Boys & Girls, and Daniel Nelson, the Director of our AfterCare Program, and asked them a few questions about youth violence. Watch our Live Video Discussion with Emily and Daniel as they dive deeper into understanding why youth react in violence,  how it affects the youth emotionally and physically, and what you can do to be part of the solution in helping these boys and girls.

We're LIVE and discussing Youth Violence on the rise in Chicago this summer. Post your questions!
