At the core of our services for children since 1887 are our full-time living spaces, also known as youth residential programs. Mercy Home never closes–children live here 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, 365 days a year.
In order to tailor the living experience to the needs of our kids as closely as possible, we operate 14 specialized, therapeutic residential programs under the umbrella of Mercy Home for Boys & Girls. Each one of these living spaces provides the safety, structure, and support that children between the ages of 11 – 21 need to grow and thrive. Placement in any one of these programs is based on the age of the child and their emotional and developmental requirements.
Our program provides everything that you would provide for your own kids to ensure that they have a life that is happy and fulfilled. To this we add special care to help children overcome any abuse and trauma in their pasts. Our goal is simple: for our young people to make positive life decisions that allow them to realize their potential.
