Young men and women ages 11-21 come to live in the youth residential program at Mercy Home in pursuit of a different vision for their lives. They seek a way forward from suffering, desperation and poverty. They seek hope, opportunity, and success. In Mercy Home’s care, they are finally able to focus on school, heal from traumas of the past, feel safe and secure in a home, develop self-control, build healthy relationships, lean on others for support, and cultivate responsibility by holding a job. In short, young people come to live with us to realize their full human potential.
