Mission: Mercy Multiplied is a nonprofit Christian organization that helps young women break free from life-controlling behaviors and situations, including eating disorders, self-harm, drug and alcohol addictions, unplanned pregnancy, depression, sexual abuse, and sex trafficking. Our residential program is voluntary, biblically based, and completely free of charge to young women ages 13-28. Our goal is to help residents permanently stop destructive cycles, discover purpose for their lives, and become productive and thriving individuals. Our outreach programs and resources are based on the same biblically based, life-transforming principles used by Mercy homes.

Target demographics: young women struggling with life-controlling issues

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

Programs: We serve young women ages 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 four U.S. homes located in Monroe, LA (20-bed facility), Nashville, TN (40-bed facility), St. Louis, MO (30-bed facility), and Lincoln, CA (40-bed facility). Our residential program is based on Christian principles and teachings and incorporates proven methods and counseling to serve a diverse population of young women from across the United States. Our program is completely free of charge to the young women we serve. Many of the young women who come to Mercy for help are facing a combination of debilitating circumstances and have been in various treatment facilities with unsuccessful long-term results. We are committed to providing our residents with excellent program services that allow them to recognize their self-worth and prepare them to reach their full potential. Through the application of God’s unconditional love, our approach to healing allows young women to permanently stop destructive cycles and prepares them to take hope out into their communities.

Mercy Multiplied gave me space to learn and begin to master tools that would allow me to live an emotionally healthy lifestyle. Before Mercy, I was struggling with a form of depression and making poor choices in my personal life and felt like I was in a cycle I couldn't break. Thankfully during my 6 months there I experienced radical growth as I was loved and supported by the amazing staff. I'm so incredibly grateful for my time there, even with all the ups and downs that come with living in a group home, it was totally worth it.

Mercy Multiplied had such an amazing impact on my life. I was struggling with so many lifelong issues that could have killed me but because of Mercy I was able to be restored and set on the path of freedom.

Operation Second Chance is awesome. I currently retired and had a job lined up that ended up just being an internship that is non-paying. With no income coming in yet from me and only my wives income we hit a wall real fast. OSC has helped relieve some stress with helping us out with are rent. They have gone above and beyond the call of duty to help us out as well as everyone else they help. Please help get them noticed so they can keep providing support.

I was a mess when I heard about this program from a friend. She recommended that I read Nancy Alcorns book "Echoes of Mercy". So I read it & thought about applying. I ended up applying like in February or March & got accepted to go in on April 16th. This program is a great program for all the girls who are struggling. I got saved while in the program, now I'm doing good. I have had my struggles & achievements. Ups & downs. But I know God has helped me through it all. This program is amazingly helpful to those who need Gods's comfort, peace, & the freedom to live a captive free life. I definitely recomend it!

From the minute I walked through the doors of Mercy, I felt Love and Acceptance from strangers that I hadn’t even bought or earned. I still struggled to believe I had a need legitimate enough to get help from Mercy. Honestly, my pride was so strong that I felt like I could handle being a staff member. Day after day, minute after minute, staff had to correct me. At first, I felt angry and mistreated. But eventually, I came to realize that I had more problems than just an eating disorder; I had serious issues with legalism, control and pride.
Throughout the counseling model, I couldn’t understand how the LORD could be pleased with me not doing anything for HIS Kingdom. In the beginning of counseling, I remember Meredith asking me to stop and take time resting with the LORD and listening to His voice. I had no idea what that even meant and thought of it as a waste of time. But gradually I came to realize the incredible power behind being in the LORD’s presence. In choosing to forgive, I found how He desires for me to give up my right for getting repayment for the areas where I was wronged and leave that in His hands. The most significant shift in my thinking began as I identified lies I believed for so long about my identity and worth. I am still learning about the significance and depth of God’s grace. Crystal worked with me to create truth statements that I daily use to renew my mind. Now I can begin to see life from a new perspective according to what God sees, not the false ways I interpreted God from experiences at church or Bible. Instead of minimizing my emotions, I’m learning to be aware of them and continue to bring hurts to Him for His healing touch. The LORD is teaching me how to share emotions and connect in a healthy way with others. The enemy has so deceptively twisted the Truth. Through the past experiences of my family in the occult, I learned how he even twists belonging to the family of God, taking communion, and signing the book of Life. The blood of Jesus has become an even more significant, life-changing atonement for evil in my life. Because I have authority in the name of Jesus, I can be free from the enslavement to sin that has held me down. As Mercy helped me trace habits of sin in past generations, I became more aware of areas that need to be monitored in my own life to break them off and keep them from being passed to the next generation.

After Mercy, I plan to move back to Hot Springs, Arkansas and attend Christian Ministries Church. At first, I hope to work as a teacher’s aide or daycare worker. Jane Hamon said in my prophecy, “…you would have been doing the right things for all the wrong reasons and it would have really undermined your ability to do it for the long run and the LORD says, ‘daughter, I’m wiring you now for the long run.’’’ She also said, “The LORD says, ‘I’ve begun to fill your mind now and fill your heart with dreams of influence and dreams of being able to help others and having an ability to be able to carry out what’s happened with you into other peoples’ lives…’” My prayer is that these things continue to take place and the LORD will use me just as He said He would.

From the bottom of my heart I want to say “thank you” for allowing me to experience the presence of God day in and day out in such an intimate, personal way. My life will never be the same! Mercy has helped my family break generational patterns so that they stop with me! I have a new perspective on who my Savior is and what His intentions are for my life. By staying in the program, I have gotten to truly experience life in the Kingdom that Jesus died to bring to me.

I came to Mercy for an internship at the corporate office in Nashville, and I loved it! I spent most of my time with the corporate staff, but I also got the opportunity to hang out with the residents in the home. To me, this was the most rewarding time! When I walked in the doors of Mercy for the first time, I saw God's presence everywhere I went. I have never experienced a group of people so committed to following the Word of God. This is Kingdom work!

I was desperate for help, and turned to Mercy Multiplied because I couldn't afford any additional treatment and it was free of charge. Little did I know that this place would be what would help to change my life for the better. I learned things that I could apply to my life outside of Mercy that I was unable to find throughout my 5+ years of treatment in other treatment centers. It was scary going to a place I knew little about and was also away from my hometown, but I wouldn't change my experience for anything. There was so much support and everyone was so helpful throughout my journey of finding myself and a desire/want to live again. Can't thank this place and everyone's support enough!

I don't even know where to start... I found Mercy by searching for affordable treatment options because I didn't know what else to do. I thought I was crazy for applying to some random program I found online. For all I knew it could have been a scam, but it was a risk I had to take. After all, I didn't have anything to lose, so I gave it a shot. I entered the program in March of 2015. I was broken and hopeless. I had severe ptsd and hatred towards myself. During the program, I received unconditional love from the staff. I immediately felt like God had put me in the right place. I learned that God loves me and that he wants me to love myself. I spent a year at Mercy Multiplied and worked through some of my hardest traumas. I broke the covenant I had made with death and gained the ability to walk in freedom no matter what was going on in my life. Life isn't perfect and I still face issues related to PTSD, but now I know that God is greater than the trauma I experienced and I am not the result of what happened. I am a child of God. I can honestly say that I probably would not be here now if I had not gone to Mercy! I have no way to thanks the people who made my transformation possible.

I went into Mercy Multiplied having experenced one of the most tragic acquisitions. I was robbed. I had experenced identity theft. Not financially, but emotionally and spiritually. I felt like I had lost everything. I was left with no hope, no joy, no self-control, and I lacked the ability to love and be loved. Satan robbed me, locked me up, and the only thing he fed me was lies. I was held captive for years, starving for truth, and everytime I tried to escape I had no sense of direction. I was out of options. Mercy Multiplied, though. They re-connected me with the One I thought would never want anything to do with me. His name, His sweet name, is Jesus. The first thing Jesus did was make sure that I knew that He still loved me. Deeply, too. After everything I had done, He still loved me deeply. I suffered with self-harm and anorexia for a long time. I bowed down to the lies for a long time. I felt helpless and I was shameful. But I spent a lot of time with Jesus while I was at Mercy Multiplied, and He became my best friend. Now, I am walking in freedom, I am married to the man of my dreams, and I am falling more and more in love with Jesus every single day.

I strongly feel like in order to walk in the freedom Christ offers, you have to go through a (3 seasons) process:
1.) The first season is realizing that you aren't free, and that was a heartbreaking season for me. Building up the courage to drop your pride, and the bravery to seek help. Not as easy as it sounds.
2.) The second season is the hardest though, which is choosing freedom. The enemy and the flesh scream loud, which sometimes make it really hard to choose what pleases Jesus. But, everytime you say no to sin, it gets a little easier the next time. It's like a muscle. It's a refining process. It's really uncomfortable sometimes. But the beauty in it is that God is molding your character and strenghening you to fight the good fight.
3.) The third season is WALKING IN the FREEDOM you fought for. You've chose Jesus enough times now that it is molded into your character. It's who you are. You are a servant of Christ. A warrior. An overcomes. Not that it's always the easiest thing, but you know now that it is always possible.

I'm in season number three. I'm waking in freedom. I would never change my decision to seek help and I cherish my experience at Mercy Multiplied.

Mercy Multiplied is changing lives. It changed mine.
