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!

A good education is the foundation for limitless opportunities.

Education is the cornerstone of every child's success at Mercy Home. Many of our boys and girls have endured traumatic circumstances that prevent them from making school a priority. Most arrive three to four years behind in school - especially in the important subjects of math and reading.

When Alex's parents fought during their divorce, he blamed himself. He felt like a ping pong ball, bouncing from his mom's home to his dad's and back again. He struggled to concentrate on his classroom assignments and eventually gave up on school altogether.

But since he's been at Mercy Home, Alex has been working hard with our academic team and tutors to help him reach his full potential. He's improved his grades and realizes he actually enjoys school again. His parents participate in therapy sessions and are fully dedicated to supporting Alex and helping him heal.

The gift you make today is not just a donation; it's a lifeline for children like Alex.

And now your gift can be TRIPLED! A good friend of our Home has offered to match all gifts made through August 31st, up to $50,000! Every dollar of your gift will be matched with two, effectively tripling your impact on the educational success of our boys and girls.

This means that your kindness is reaching even further, touching even more lives, and making an even greater difference for our kids. Your generosity will ensure that each of our children has the opportunity to flourish academically so they can enjoy brighter futures.

Your gift + match = 3X the good!

Since 1887, Mercy Home has changed the lives of thousands of kids.

Your gift will give Alex and all our children at Mercy Home the opportunity to overcome the hardships of their young lives and look forward to futures full of success.

The success of kids like Alex depends on committed friends like you.
