Honoree Details

Please enter the name and address of the person you wish to notify of this gift, if applicable.

Your support will help our kids have a brighter future. Your gift will give them hope and the chance to leave darkness behind them.

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.

Since 1887 we've changed the story of more than 30,000 kids.

Your support of Mercy Home is more critical today than ever before.

Each year, more and more children need care outside of their own homes simply to survive. Many no longer have a place that they can call home. At the same time, funding for not-for-profits that can provide children in need with a safe place to live is getting more and more scarce. That’s why your support of Mercy Home is more critical today than ever before.

Each year, more and more children need care outside of their own homes simply to survive.
