Donors like you will save lives and make a difference in the lives of more than 650 kids this year! Kids like Lydia.
Lydia enjoyed a happy childhood until her mother became mentally unstable and unable to protect her, first from her alcoholic father and later from her abusive boyfriend. When Lydia was 14, her 18 year-old boyfriend routinely kidnapped and tortured her.
Lydia came close to death at the hands of her boyfriend before she was finally able to escape by running barefoot to a nearby convenience store and calling the police. Afterward, Lydia came to live at Mercy Home where she received the care, guidance, and shelter she needed to make a fresh start.
Support from Mercy Home, people like you, allowed Lydia to turn her life completely around. Lydia was able to graduate on time, earned a degree in computer science, and even went on to attend the prestigious University of Chicago’s Graduate School of Business.
