What is Mercy Home for Boys & Girls:

Mercy Home for Boys & Girls has been helping children in need since 1887.  We provide the young people in our full-time care the tools they need to overcome early trauma and become successful and contributing members of society.

We partner with our children’s families to promote emotional and psychological healing. And we are committed to raising the public’s awareness about children in need.

Mercy Home’s residency program is for young people between the ages of 11 and 21 who live in situations that place extra stress on their health and progress. The common thread that connects our children to Mercy Home is that they have experienced trauma and that they are committed to changing their lives.

We welcome referrals of kids in need from throughout the Chicago area. Our admissions process is designed to ensure that each young man or woman who comes to live at our Home is best served by the resources we provide.
