Each touch provides an opportunity for the Mercy House “family” to show love and reflect the heart of our Heavenly Father. To volunteer with Mercy House is to help save a life.

Mercy House volunteers and staff must have a public profession of faith in Christ and be in active fellowship with a body of believers proclaiming Biblically sound Christian doctrine and in submission to their pastoral authority. Mercy House volunteers and staff must embrace the strong conviction of pro-life values, including the life of the unborn. All volunteers and staff must agree to a background check and sign the confidentiality agreement for Mercy House.

Whatever your talents are, there’s a place for you to serve at Mercy House!

Please contact us at volunteer@mercyhouse.org and we will be happy to get you started in the next steps to serving our precious moms and babies.
