Mercy Home for Boys & Girls has been a solution for kids in crisis since 1887. Through its residential and community-based programs, Mercy Home offers a safe home, emotional healing, education, and life-changing opportunities for more than 1,400 young people and members of their families every year. It gives children who have suffered abuse, neglect, poverty, violence, and even abandonment the therapeutic, academic, and vocational support they need to heal from the traumas of their pasts and build success for their futures. Private sources, such as donations, account for more than 99% of Mercy Home's funding. The organization operates at two locations in Chicago – a home for boys in the West Loop neighborhood and a home for girls in the Beverly-Morgan Park community.
