About Us

What is Mercy Ministries? Mercy Ministries’ free-of-charge, voluntary, faith-based residential program serves young women from all socio-economic backgrounds, ages 13-28, who face a combination of life-controlling issues such as eating disorders, self-harm, drug and alcohol addictions, depression and unplanned pregnancy. Mercy also serves young women who have been physically and sexually abused, including victims of sex trafficking. Using proven methods, a holistic approach and counselors in a structured residential environment, Mercy has helped thousands of young women be restored to wholeness. Mercy’s goal is to help these young women find freedom from their issues and empower them to serve in their communities as productive citizens.


Mercy Ministries exists to provide opportunities for young women to experience God’s unconditional love, forgiveness, and life-transforming power.


Mercy Ministries is committed to being an effective and well-respected global organization dedicated to transforming lives of generations searching for truth and wholeness.


What makes Mercy Ministries different?

  1. We believe freedom is possible!

    We don’t teach methods of coping with life-controlling issues, we teach God’s unconditional love, forgiveness and life-transforming power.   Our program gives young women the tools they need to break free!  We apply Christian principles and teachings with proven methods and a counseling staff.  Our approach to healing allows young women to permanently stop destructive cycles and prepares them to take hope out into their communities.

  2. Our program is completely FREE OF CHARGE

    We want our residents to know that we genuinely care.  They can trust us because we are not making money off of their problems. We raise all the financial support for our programs through private funding.

  3. We have seen thousands of lives transformed

    Mercy Ministries has helped over 3,000 residents since it was founded in 1983.  In a recent survey of former Mercy Ministries of America residents, 94 percent of respondents said Mercy Ministries “transformed their lives and restored their hope.”  Time and time again we have seen girls who have no hope or will to live develop into strong, passionate leaders.  God is using Mercy graduates to impact lives all over the world.
