The 2016 Charity, chosen by the YOLO Club Members is: Hands of Mercy Everywhere, Inc. This is a Christian Home for unwed mothers located in Belleview. The girls live there before and after they have had their babies. The goal of the home is to keep these young women in school, teach them how to raise their children and keep them from becoming involved with the legal system. They are always in need of supplies for the girls and the babies. Diapers, clothing and toiletries are always welcome.
Nestled among towering oak trees in a historic Victorian building which once housed Belleview College in the late 1890’s is Hands of Mercy Everywhere, Inc. Today this beautiful house is a Christian based home for teenage mothers, their children and mothers-to-be. With 11 bedrooms, this spacious home was built by George C. Bush who established the Liberal Arts College for his daughter who graduated in 1889.
The idea for the home emerged among a group of local Christians who had a vision for young mothers and wanted to provide a safe, structured home environment where the young mothers could learn and grow spiritually as they balance being a teen mother and a teenager. Established in 2004, HOME is a 501(c) 3 nonprofit whose focus is on building healthy families in the community through love and support.
HOME emphasizes developing and establishing goals, furthering education and increasing self-awareness. It is licensed by the Florida Department of Families and Children to house up to 22 young teen mothers or soon-to-be mothers between the ages of 13 to 18. HOME is a remarkable blend of providing spirituality while teaching everyday life skills. It offers a friendly environment where the young women are encouraged to be teenagers while learning the essentials necessary to become good mothers. Childcare is provided so the young mothers can finish their high school requirements and focus on important life skills.
Since its inception, 90% of the residents of HOME have completed requirements to graduate from high school with a diploma. Many have gone on to further their education and work in the medical and educational fields. Those who establish themselves in the nearby communities after leaving HOME often drop by for visits and fellowship.
