Independent Study Reveals Success Rate

Over the years, Mercy Ministries has realized more and more the need to have empirical data so that we can document the impact of the Mercy Ministries program – lives transformed by the power of Jesus Christ. This past February, an anonymous survey of former Mercy Ministries' residents was conducted by an independent research firm. Special thanks to the Lightner Sams Family Foundation of Dallas, TX for making this possible through their grant to Mercy Ministries in November of 2007.

Every former resident for whom we had an email address was invited to participate. Approximately 400 former residents responded, and 93% of respondents stated that their experience at Mercy Ministries transformed their life and restored their hope.

In addition, we recently found that over 1,100 former residents give back financially to support the work of Mercy Ministries on an ongoing basis so that they can be a part of other young women finding freedom.

Your support is truly making a difference in the lives of young women. Thank you.
