Before coming to Mercy Home, Aniyah lost her mother in a tragic car accident. When her father was discharged from the hospital, he became addicted to his prescription pain medication, and Aniyah feared that she'd lose him, too.
But today she's found a sense of peace, thanks to the safety and stability of our Home and the academic resources she needs to catch up in school. Her father is receiving care for his addiction and the two of them are dealing with their loss in family therapy.
Aniyah is finally able to focus on school now - she's looking forward to her classes and afterschool club activities in the new year.
Your generosity helps kids like Aniyah overcome their trauma and discover their true potential. Thanks to caring friends like you, Aniyah and her father are healing their relationship and looking forward to a brighter future as a loving family.
Since 1887, Mercy Home has been a solution for kids in crisis. We've helped tens of thousands of young people in Chicago recover from the trauma of abuse, neglect, and neighborhood violence, so they can grow and thrive. Be part of our children's success by making a generous gift today. Thank you!
