The agency provides quality services, contribute to innovative community collaborations, and lead in resolving community problems impacting families and children.
My Joyful Heart
My Joyful Heart is a unique charity that provides personalized assistance and encouragement for Chicago area and suburban children.They work in tandem with school districts to enroll needy children; the children who are coming to school without a jacket in the winter, the children who do not have proper shoes or clothing that fits, the children in need of hygiene and especially the children in need of encouragement and hope.
Crittenton Centers three core services include the Crisis Nursery, Child Development Center, and Educational and Support Services. Crittenton Centers’ mission is to protect and nurture children and families. They believe children come first, strong families build strong communities and that community partnerships are vital to meet the needs of families in Peoria and all of central Illinois.
Chicago area kids come to Mercy Home in pursuit of a different vision for their lives. They seek a way forward from suffering, desperation and poverty. They seek hope, opportunity, and success. At Mercy Home, they are finally able to focus on school, heal from traumas of the past, feel safe and secure in a home.Whether living full-time at Mercy Home, receiving continued connection through their AfterCare program, or spending time with a positive adult role model, young people have many opportunities to develop the tools they need to see and build better futures.
