Have you heard of Misericordia in IL: Operated by the Sisters of Mercy under the auspices of the Catholic Bishop of Chicago, Misericordia has been providing services for persons in need since 1921. Originally a home for unwed mothers, our current Mission began in 1954 when Misericordia opened its doors to infants and children with mental disabilities
Today, our network of quality care consists of two campuses that embrace over 550 children and adults challenged by mental and physical disabilities. Misericordia South is located at 2916 West 47th Street and provides skilled nursing care for children with severe and profound mental and physical disabilities. Misericordia’s North campus located at 6300 North Ridge Avenue contains nine individual group homes, an independent living apartment complex, six residential centers for nonambulatory children and adults, an intensive training center for children, ten structured apartments for adults with severe and profound mental disabilities and three home sites in the neighboring community. Our residents are persons of all ethnic, religious, racial and socioeconomic backgrounds.
The residents of Misericordia also make some of the most beautiful Christmas cards. You can find out more at misericordia.org/.
