Misericordia

UPDATED: November 2, 2021

Misericordia offers a community of care that maximizes potential for persons with mild to profound  developmental disabilities, many of whom are also physically challenged.  By serving society’s most vulnerable citizens, Misericordia also serves the families who want the best for them, yet cannot provide it at home.

Through a spectrum of residential options on its 31-acre Chicago campus and in the community, and with a wide variety of programs, Misericordia currently serves more than 600 children and adults residentially, from diverse racial, religious and socio-economic backgrounds. Twenty percent of our residents either come from poverty families or have no families and are wards of the State.  

 

Misericordia is a Catholic Charity of the Archdiocese of Chicago with the mission of providing a quality of life for our residents. We are a Community of Believers joined together for this common purpose. Through Catholic values and traditions, we strive to be a diverse and inclusive community that embraces those of all faiths as well as those with no religious tradition. All who believe in our mission are welcome into our Community of Believers.

Misericordia offers a continuum of care to meet their diverse needs and aspires for each individual to live as independently as possible in the highest level of community integration feasible. Residential settings include:

  • CILAs (Community Integrated Living Arrangements for small groups in neighborhood homes outside Misericordia’s main campus)
  • On-campus apartments
  • Group homes on-campus
  • Skilled nursing residence
  • Languages:
  • English
  • Insurances Accepted:
  • Call for Fee
  • Medicaid
  • Private Insurance
