This Year’s Charity

Young Friends of Mercy

Young Friends of Mercy is a group of leaders, ages 40 years and younger, who are passionate about giving back to their community by raising funds for Mercy Health Foundation to support initiatives that directly impact patient care at Mercy Hospital St. Louis.  This year, Young Friends is excited to support Mercy Kids Therapy & Development Center.

Mercy Kids Therapy and Development Center is here for children with developmental delays, bringing together support from both family and caring health professionals who specialize in medical and developmental disorders.  Mercy Kids Therapy and Development Center serves patients on the autism spectrum as well as those with associated behavioral and mental health concerns. Our focus is on expediting care, improving access to evidence-based treatments and maximizing positive long-term outcomes.  Developmental concerns impact the entire family – and every child, every parent, every sibling, every family deserves the possibility of a better tomorrow.

A growing number of hard-working families cannot afford the intensive and often lengthy treatment programs necessary to address the development issues presenting in their children. With your support, we can ensure that barriers are removed so that every child who needs our services is able to receive them. Donations will support a scholarship fund for the center’s patients, making Mercy’s services available to families who lack the means to pay.
