Geographic areas served: Nashville, Tennessee; Monroe, Louisiana; St. Louis, Missouri; Lincoln, California

Programs: We serve young women aged 13-28 from all over the country struggling with life-controlling issues such as eating disorders, self-harm, abuse and neglect, drug and alcohol abuse, depression, and unplanned pregnancy. We have three U.S. homes located in Monroe, LA (20-bed facility), Nashville, TN (40-bed facility), and St. Louis, MO (30-bed facility). Our fourth domestic home is under construction in Lincoln, CA (40-bed facility). Each home follows the guiding principles of unconditional love, accountability, and excellence. We provide the following program services: 1) Residential Care: At no cost to her, each girl enters Mercy Ministries of America with a six-month timeline and receives Biblically-based counseling, individualized nutrition and fitness education, life-skills training, and aftercare planning. 2) Education Services: Through Mercy Ministries of America Institute, we provide curriculum-based education services for minors and GED preparation/training for eligible residents. 3) Pregnancy Services: We provide a Basic Decision Making Program which encourages residents to make educated, prayerful decisions about parenting or placing their child for adoption. We are also licensed in TN and LA as a child-placing agency. We provide extensive parental, adoption, and grief counseling for residents in need of these services. 4) Transitional Care: In 2007, we implemented a pilot transitional care program in our Nashville home to provide emotional, spiritual, physical, and educational support as our graduates transition to independent living. We are evaluating this program, and developing a model to be replicated in all of our homes. Approximately 75% of the young women who enter our program graduate ready to act as a productive citizen in her community. Our graduates can be found on the mission field, in corporate jobs, in college, and at home raising families.

We exist to provide opportunities for young women to experience God''s unconditional love, forgiveness, and life-transforming power. Many of the young women who enter our program are dealing with a combination of debilitating circumstances and have been to other treatment facilities with unsuccessful long-term results. The issues facing young women today are universal and not defined by nationality, religion, ethnicity, or cultural boundaries. Our program has been designed to address the human spirit, and it is meant to reach across all demographics to restore broken lives. At Mercy Ministries of America, we teach young women to address the root issue of the problems rather than rely on behavior modification, and we equip young women with the tools they need to take hope into the world.
