Review for Mercy Communities Inc, Springfield, IL, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

I have been aquainted with M.E.R.C.Y. Communities for about 10 years; first as an employee and now as a community supporter. I have had the pleasure of seeing first hand the amazing opportunities that M.E.R.C.Y. can offer the young families that choose to participate in the program. M.E.R.C.Y. Communities provides support in all aspects of the participant's life. Through self-esteem, money management, parenting, and various other life skills classes, participants are able to embrace who they are and focus on areas of their life that they want to improve. While the participants work toward self-sufficiency, their children benefit from the safety and comfort of a stable positive environment in which to live and grow. Since I have been acquainted with M.E.R.C.Y. Communities I have seen many successes. I have seen participants come into the program homeless and leave as homeowners. I have seen participants come into the program with little to no self-esteem and leave with the confidence that they can make it on their own. I have also seen participants with very few skills leave the program with full-time employment. M.E.R.C.Y. Communities is truly an organization that has helped to empower many young mothers to become self-sufficient and promote positive change in their lives.
