Are youth required to attend school and work?

Yes. All Mercy Home residents must attend school. We believe that a good education is an essential component to a healthy and productive future.  Upon admission to Mercy Home, co-workers locate a school suitable for a child’s ability to compete and succeed.  If the youth is 16 years of age or older, he or she is required to work a part-time job.  As we do with school placement, we help youth find and sustain employment at area businesses while living at Mercy Home. Many actually earn their very first work experience by working a paid part-time job within the Home.
