Mercy Multiplied’s free-of-charge, voluntary, faith-based residential program serves young women from all socio-economic backgrounds, ages 13-28, who face a combination of life-controlling issues such as eating disorders, self-harm, drug and alcohol addictions, depression and unplanned pregnancy. Mercy also serves young women who have been physically and sexually abused, including victims of sex trafficking. Using proven methods, a holistic approach and professional counselors in a structured residential environment, Mercy has helped thousands of young women be restored to wholeness. Mercy’s goal is to help these young women find freedom from their issues and empower them to serve in their communities as productive citizens.
In December 2006, Pat Bradley, President of Crisis Aid International rescued a young girl in East Africa from sex-trafficking. Since that time, Crisis Aid has been offering rescue, shelter, and renewal to children/women victimized by the horrors of sex-trafficking in East Africa, Cambodia and Haiti through our SAFE campaign. Crisis Aid has rescued over 400 girls ages 4-24 since December 2006. Currently there are 4 Refuge homes in East Africa with 32 girls who were victims from the red light district, and in 2011 opened Mercy Chapel, which provides counseling, spiritual guidance, and vocational training to girls who are working in the red-light district in East Africa. IN Dec 2012 Crisis Aid opened their first U.S. Safe Home in St. Louis, MO with the help of local churches, individuals and businesses. Crisis Aid Refuge Homes provide food, shelter, emotional and spiritual counseling, schooling, vocational training and medical care.
