My Nonprofit Reviews
Review for Mercy Communities Inc, Springfield, IL, USA
I was introduced to Mercy a couple of years ago and quickly saw how important their work was. There are several local agencies helping provide the homeless with shelter, but Mercy goes beyond that. Not only do they provide shelter, they also provide the counseling and structure and support these moms need to become self-sufficient. Mercy will help moms: get off drugs, go back to school, find a job, get transportation to/from the job, budget for life outside of Mercy, find an apartment, furnish the apartment, etc. How many not-for-profits are this wholistic? This is not a temporary fix. It's life-changing for the moms willing to put in the effort.
I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...
my interaction with the moms and their kids.
If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...
help them raise funds to help more moms.
