Mercy Canada

An executive search conducted by Nelson/Kraft & Associates on behalf of Mercy Canada

OUR STORY
Every woman wants to feel healthy and whole, but many have experienced pain, trauma or abuse in their past. They may feel unwanted and ashamed and may struggle with anxiety, depression, addiction, or suicidal thoughts. Stuck in a destructive cycle, they often feel that life has become unmanageable.

The need is great and we are growing! In order to build greater capacity, we have paused the residential program as we actively search for a larger property in the Fraser Valley that will facilitate both our residential care program and wellness center. The residential care program helps young women (ages 19 – 30) find healing in a supportive environment during a 6-12 month stay. Our wellness centre is an outpatient program offers the same programing to women 13+.
