Tutoring is an integral part of our volunteering program. Volunteers spend an hour each week with our kids during the school year, helping them with homework and encouraging positive academic habits.

For our young people, simply having someone who listens and cares whether they do their homework can make all the difference in the world.

When a friend has a physical injury, we encourage them to see a doctor. Why don’t we do the same when a friend is hurting mentally?

Untreated mental illness can lead to trauma. Mercy Home for Boys & Girls is asking you to sign its online pledge to help end the stigma of mental illness.

Recognize the signs of abuse or neglect, and engage in a discussion with family and friends, to help save young lives. Together, we can influence others by our own example. You can help advocate for policies and programs that promote healthy families. Sign the pledge to commit to becoming more aware of the issues behind child abuse and to help support children and families in crisis.
