Throughout the Harvesting Hope series, we have discussed and highlighted a variety of local missions, ministries, and organizations serving our community. We are proud of all of them, and their commitments to the high plains. The HFS team is blessed to be surrounded and filled with incredible people, who are also passionate about programs outside of our community. As a result, we want to share organizations outside of our community that our team is proud of. Today we are excited to share Mercy Multiplied with you!
Mercy Multiplied was founded by Nancy Alcorn in 1983, after a career working with young girls in abusive and criminal situations. As a result of the need for a place where these girls could transform their lives and find a new hope in Jesus, she opened the first Mercy home in Monroe, LA. Since then, Mercy has opened homes in Nashville, TN; Sacramento, CA; and St. Louis, MO. It is also affiliated with homes in the United Kingdom, Canada, and New Zealand.
According to its website, "Mercy has helped over 3,000 residents since it was founded in 1983. In a recent survey of former Mercy residents, 94 percent of respondents said Mercy 'transformed their lives and restored their hope.'" Mercy is successful because instead of simply teaching how to get through hardships individually, they share God's unconditional love. They know and believe that God guides and transforms even the most destructive lives. Mercy Multiplied is free of charge for their residents, and all financial support is raised through private funding.
Mercy also provides resources and workshops for churches, individuals, or organizations who are committed to helping women within their own community. They also conduct a 'Freedom Experience' event, a two-day event designed to help women release destructive thoughts, feelings, and habits. To learn more visit their website.
Mercy Multiplied is a wonderful organization, offering services to women desperately searching for freedom from past lives through the love of Jesus Christ. We believe in the need for Mercy in our society and our communities. We ask you to keep them in your prayers. You can learn more and provide support financially here.
