Kids outside

The Well of Mercy is a long term community living environment that supports single mothers as they work towards self-sufficiency. You can also help support our moms as they work towards goals by serving as a volunteer babysitter!

All of the kids here are curious and energetic, and love playing with new babysitters! We are flexible with scheduling, though we are seeking consistent and reliable volunteers to care for the babies and children that reside here.

If you don't get a response within 2 days, please call (773)274-4227 or send another email. We love new volunteers, but sometimes our response emails end up in the Spam folder!

Mission Statement

Our mission is to provide a communal home environment that exists to support single pregnant women who choose life for their babies. The mothers, empowered by faith, and with support and guidance will be on their way to build solid, poverty-free futures for their families.

Description

The Well of Mercy is a long-term transitional living environment for single pregnant mothers and their children. We aim to support women who choose life for their babies by providing shelter, education and employment assistance, emotional support, and spiritual guidance.

We offer many resources under one roof, providing holistic support and a unique cooperative living environment.
