Your generous gift will ensure our therapeutic programs can continue to bring hope, healing, and unconditional love to kids like Jacob.
Before coming to Mercy Home, Jacob lived in a violent household where not living up to his dad's expectations often left him bruised and afraid. He struggled at school and felt alone.
But therapy did wonders for Jacob, even though talking about hurtful experiences and reliving the fear of abuse was very painful and overwhelming.
Thankfully, Jacob had Mercy Home's working facility dog, Pongo, by his side to help him relax and feel comfortable during therapeutic conversations. Pongo's unconditional love and soothing presence play a vital role in helping kids like Jacob heal from the trauma of their past.
Pongo is another tool in our therapeutic toolbox, but he's so much more. He's a coworker, friend, and confidant. He's an icebreaker for getting kids like Jacob to open up and talk about their feelings, as painful as they may be.
And that's important because that's when the healing starts.
Will you make a gift today to help Mercy Home enhance every aspect of our care, so kids like Jacob have a chance at a bright future? Thanks to your compassion, Jacob will always have a friend by his side.
