Mercy Ministries is a residential home for young women between the ages of 13 and 28 who are struggling to be free from the effects of a variety of life-controlling problems, including drug and alcohol abuse, eating disorders, physical and/or sexual abuse, unplanned pregnancies, suicidal tendencies, and more. At Mercy Ministries, these women are introduced to unconditional love, many of them, for the first time. They receive professional services from counselors, nutritionists, educators and healthcare workers. The grant is to fund the new Transitional Care Program to provide continuing emotional, spiritual, physical, and educational support as young women transition from living at Mercy Ministries or another residential program to living healthy lives that add value to a community. 60 Mercy Ministries' graduates will develop an aftercare plan addressing goals for living situation, education, employment, health and mental health, community engagement, and transportation and 30 young women from the Middle Tennessee area, who did not attend the Mercy Ministries program, will utilize at least 4 services of the transitional care program.
