Mercy Home for Boys and Girls

Chicago’s Mercy Home for Boys & Girls began in 1887 in temporary quarters located above a Catholic library on LaSalle Street, in the shadows of the Board of Trade Building.  Its mission is to save young lives by providing a safe, nurturing home, an opportunity for an excellent education, and a means for personal growth.  It is fully committed to raising public awareness and support of youth in need.
