Your support will make a meaningful difference in the lives of kids like Leila and Amari.
When Leila and Amari's grandparents died, they felt like they had lost everything. Their grandparents were the only real parents they ever knew. They were sent to live with their aunt, who struggled to care for them. She didn't know how to help them and was afraid they were headed down the wrong path.
Leila and Amari were both overwhelmed by grief and struggling at home and at school. It seemed like there was no way out, until their aunt searched for help on the internet and found Mercy Home.
Today, Leila and Amari have found a sense of peace, thanks to the therapeutic resources they need to heal and the academic support they need to catch up in school. They're learning how to communicate their emotions and cope with their loss in family therapy sessions with their aunt.
Leila and Amari are finally able to focus on school now - and they're looking forward to their classes and afterschool club activities in the new year.
Your generosity helps kids like Leila and Amari overcome their trauma and discover their true potential. Thanks to caring friends like you, these siblings are healing their relationship and looking forward to brighter futures.
