Regional Luncheons Offer Inside Look at Mercy Homes
January 18, 2018
Mercy Multiplied hosts several Friends of Mercy Luncheons in their residential homes throughout the year as an opportunity to invite the community to learn more about the local and worldwide work and mission of Mercy.
Guests are invited to enjoy a complimentary lunch and program highlighting Mercy resident and graduate stories of transformation. The young women who share their testimonies are among the thousands Mercy Multiplied has served since its beginning in 1983. Girls ages 13-32 from all socio-economic backgrounds come to Mercy for an average of six months to receive the care and counseling they need to break free from a combination of life-controlling issues, including eating disorders, self-harm, drug and alcohol addictions, unplanned pregnancy, depression, sexual abuse and sex trafficking.
Guests are also introduced to the many resources and outreach programs Mercy offers to equip helpers to reach the hurting within their local churches and circles of influence. Mercy’s heart is to share from our experience and expertise developed over 35 years of seeing lives changed.
To conclude each luncheon, guests have the opportunity to tour the respective Mercy homes. These tours are often led by Mercy residents and give a “day in the life” perspective of a resident’s stay in the Mercy program.
