I am blessed in many ways; helping those less fortunate than I, giving back, is important to me.
I work for a non-profit agency for at-risk youth of Chicago: Mercy Home for Boys & Girls. It is a 121-year old institution that has served over 20,000 youth who come to escape poor living situations. Mercy Home provides all of life's necessities to the youth, along with medical treatment, therapy, education and, most importantly, hope. It is 99.7% privately funded.
