Mercy Ministries Brunch in Washington, DC Area

At Mercy, we are always so excited to bring the vision to areas around the United States outside of where we have actual homes. We take in girls from all over the US, Canada and around the world. There are young women who have graduated from our program living all across the country. They are going to school, raising kids, and making a difference in their communities.

This past weekend, we held our first ever northeast regional event for Mercy Ministries in Annapolis, MD where over 200 people gathered to hear the vision of Mercy and hear firsthand from graduates living and working in the northeast region.

Founder and President of Mercy Ministries, Nancy Alcorn, shared the vision of Mercy and introduced four remarkable graduates of the program. There was not a dry eye in the crowd as Kaitlen, Jordan, Krista and Michaela all shared their amazing stories of transformation.

Designer T-shirts specially made by a Mercy graduate for the event were also on display and available for purchase with all proceeds going to Mercy Ministries.

Thanks to everyone who came out for the event and also thanks to our sponsors Amazing Grace Enterprises, Kathie Dalrymple, Bay Area Community Church, Grace Baptist Church, The Frangipane Family, Chris & Olga Just, McDonald Auto Service, Redeeming Life, Inc., Erin Rampersaud and Noel Namocatcat. Special thanks to Brenda Ulman for all of her hard work and the team of volunteers she put together to help with this event. It is incredible to see the vision of Mercy spreading to new regions of the country! God is truly expanding our territory!
