Support March For Kids

It Begins With You

You can help create a brighter future for Chicago’s children by supporting Mercy Home’s March for Kids this month.



Resilient Schools

Invite us to your school and learn about trauma-responsive care in the classroom.

Professional Development for Educators

Understanding the impact of childhood trauma and adversity on students helps you create the best possible learning environment for all. Mercy Home’s Resilient Schools can show you how.

With our trauma-informed, professional development curricula, you will shift your approach to classroom changes. Instead of asking “What’s wrong with this student” you’ll learn how to reframe the question, asking instead: “What’s happened to this student and how can I best help them learn?”

Trainings Address

  • The impact of trauma on a child’s brain and academic experience
  • Effective responses to challenging behaviors
  • Strategies for helping struggling students self-regulate
  • Structure and routines that make all students feel safe

Rooted in our experience partnering with schools our own young people attend, and on our successful residential treatment model, Mercy Home’s Resilient Schools gives educators the tools to help all students engage in learning. Our programming includes presentations at schools, events at Mercy Home and virtual webinars.

Resilient Schools gives teachers additional tools to utilize with students who challenge them, have bad days, or those who even excel in the classroom. I truly believe that the Resilient Schools provides adults with a method to support the students and youth that they work with on a holistic level.
