About Mercy Ministries
Since 1983, Mercy Ministries has provided a free-of-charge, voluntary Christian residential program to young women aged 13-28 from a variety of socioeconomic backgrounds who have been abused, exploited or are facing difficult life circumstances. This includes women who have been victims of physical and sexual abuse, including sex trafficking, as well as those who face life-controlling issues such as eating disorders, self-harm, drug and alcohol addictions, depression and unplanned pregnancy. The program features a holistic approach and includes biblically based counseling, life-skills training, nutrition education and fitness instruction.
