Through our residential, aftercare, referral and community-based mentoring programs, we provide critical, life-changing services to more than 650 young women and men every year. MercyWorks, Mercy Home’s faith-based post-graduate service program, offers a diverse group of highly motivated women and men a unique opportunity to grow personally, spiritually and professionally while making a difference in the lives of youth with complex trauma histories and gaining hands on experience at one of Chicago’s top non-profits. MercyWorks is a faith-based volunteer program that offers a diverse group of highly motivated women and men a unique opportunity to acquire professional experience while growing spiritually, personally, and communally.  Volunteers make a one year commitment to work with the children at Mercy Home and devote themselves to a process of building community and living in simplicity.  They also commit to growing in their understanding of social justice and spirituality through prayer and reflection.
