BENEFITING: Mercy Home for Boys & Girls
EVENT DATE: Oct 31, 2012
Mercy Home for Boys & Girls has been a solution for kids in crisis since 1887. Its full-time residential, aftercare and community-based mentoring programs provide life-saving services to more than 600 troubled and hurting young women and men every year. Mercy Home gives children who have suffered abuse, neglect, poverty and abandonment the opportunity to rebuild their lives and the encouragement to realize their dreams. It provides young people with therapeutic, academic and vocational help so they can grow into healthy, successful adults.
Mercy Home is almost entirely privately funded and operates two campuses in Chicago-a home for boys at 1140 W. Jackson Blvd. and a home for girls at 11600 S. Longwood Dr.
Thank you for supporting my marathon effort so the children of Mercy Home can dream of having a better future!
