Mercy Introduces New Program: Team Mercy 360
August 8, 2017
Mercy Multiplied has recently launched Team Mercy 360, a new program for supporters to make a difference in the lives of desperate young women struggling with life-controlling issues. Mercy Multiplied’s Founder and President, Nancy Alcorn, envisioned the program as a powerful way for supporters to come together on a team to help hurting girls and see their gifts multiplied.
When people sign up to become part of Team Mercy 360, they are making a way for young women to find freedom through Mercy’s free-of-charge program that offers “360 degree” care and counseling for the whole person – spirit, soul, and body.
Team Mercy 360 members give $30 a month and invite at least one person to join the team. Members receive a customizable t-shirt, free annual entry into one of Mercy’s “Run for Mercy 5K and Family Walk” events, and an exclusive opportunity to send hope-filled messages to Mercy residents.
Excited about more than the member benefits, many Mercy staff, graduates, and others have joined the team because they want to play a part in the life-transforming mission of Mercy.
“Everything about Mercy’s mission inspires me to give my best because I’ve seen first-hand the difference it makes in the lives of young women,” said Sharon Wood, Mercy staff and mother of Mercy graduate.
“Mercy’s mission inspires me because I get to see the girls graduate and walk in freedom. Giving to Mercy has changed me because it gives me hope to know that women can be transformed and anyone who walks through the doors of Mercy can experience God’s love and transformation,” said Georgiana Erskine, another Mercy staff.
“Mercy introduces the concept of hope to women and girls who are seemingly hopeless. That really pushed me to sow back into the ministry that God used to essentially save my life,” said Krystle, a 2014 Mercy graduate. “The program takes people who were broken and hopeless and gives them a foundation to launch them into a future of freedom, hope, redemption, healing, and success.”
“So many people think that $30 a month isn’t enough to matter, but it makes a great difference,” said Alcorn. For over 30 years, Mercy Multiplied has helped thousands of young women, providing biblically based counseling, life-skills training, and educational opportunities in a free-of-charge residential setting.

“Thirty dollars a month does matter. It does make a big difference,” said Krystle. “I had the opportunity to receive so many blessings because of the faithfulness of people who didn’t even know me. There’s so many detailed pieces of the program that might not seem like a big deal to the rest of the world, but they mean the world to you when you’re a resident. It’s not a couple of huge donations that makes the tiny details possible. It’s the small commitments that make those details possible for the residents.”
“My $30 matters because I believe it is multiplied,” said Wood. “When each person gives what they can, it gives opportunities for young women to come to Mercy and experience freedom from life-controlling issues.”
“I know the $30 I donate to Mercy matters because I get to see the girls have so much joy and true happiness when they leave to program,” said Erskine. “If you’re thinking of partnering with Mercy, I would say just do it. The reward that comes from this ministry and being a part of the Mercy family is amazing.”
