My Nonprofit Reviews
Review for Mercy Ministries of America, Inc., Nashville, TN, USA
I was only 17 and was already in adolocent mental institutions for suicide attempts, cutting, an eating disorder, and substance abuse. My home life was awful. I was physically abused by a member of my family constantly. I felt like I had no hope left in me, no drive to keep living. I just wanted to end it all. I would do anything at all to mask the pain, to cover it up. Whether It was cutting to try to relieve the pain I felt inside. Or using alcohol and drugs to mask it. I learned about Mercy from my church. I had applied and was at the Nashville home within a few months. I believe with all of my heart I would not be here today if it wasnt for Mercy and God. All of the other places I had been only medicated me or tryed to teach me new coping skills. Mercy went way beyond that. They showed me the Love and mercy of God. The staff were absolutely amazing. They were very educated and knew what they were doing. Every single day, they went beyond their job title, by showing us the love and grace of God. They were the most loving people I have ever been around. At Mercy, It wasnt an Institution, or a hospital. It was a Home. An inviting, modern, and comfortable home. My time at Mercy was the most amazing 6 months of my life. I was able to develop a true relationship with Christ and surrender all of me to him. I learned I am perfect exactly the way I am. I Graduated from Mercy Ministries in October of 2008, a completely new and free woman. My past no longer defines who I am, Christ does. If you are trying to find a charity to donate to, Mercy Ministries is the perfect one. They change girls lifes every single day. They not only help girls who are hurting and desperate, They transform and restore precious lives.
