Codilis & Associates P.C. is a Chicago area law firm that specializes in mortgages and creditor rights. Codilis & Associates is also a strong supporter of charitable organizations such as the Mercy Home for Boys and Girls.
Founded in 1887, the Mercy Home for Boys and Girls provides a safe, stable home environment for homeless youth through its system of 14 therapeutic residential programs. At these homes and through its after care program for former residents, the Mercy Home for Boys and Girls fulfils the basic needs of children in need and further provides educational and vocational resources, social support, opportunities for community service, therapy, and life skills such as financial literacy.
As a charitable organization, the Mercy Home for Boys and Girls relies on donations to fund its programs. Funds are raised through individual donations and events such as the annual Graduate’s Luncheon.
The Mercy Home for Boys and Girls Graduate Luncheon is an event that honors graduates of the Mercy Home programs and raises funds to support the continuing education of former residents. The event features a speech from a former Mercy Home resident, as well as addresses by members of the charities staff and various business leaders. This year’s event will be held on June 7th at the Chicago Hilton.
