Sen. McCarter Hosts Mercy Multiplied Of St. Louis

May 11, 2018

Twenty six young ladies from Mercy Multiplied in St. Louis spent May 3 in Springfield as guests of Senator Kyle McCarter and his wife, Victoria.

Sen. McCarter (R-Lebanon) said Mercy has a 93 percent success rate helping at-risk young women become successful adults.

“Victoria and I believe in this work. We believe in these young ladies who have the courage to step up and ask for help. They’re willing to allow God into their lives to change them and help them overcome,” said McCarter.

The visit has become an annual event (since 2010) for the residents of Mercy Multiplied’s St. Louis home. In addition to a tour of the State Capitol and recognition by the Illinois Senate, the ladies visited the Abraham Lincoln Home and Old State Capitol.

“As I said on the Senate floor, they are my heroes because they have more courage than most people I’ve met,” said McCarter.

Mercy Multiplied is a non-profit, Christian organization helping young women with life-controlling behaviors and situations. The McCarters have been involved with Mercy since the death of their daughter Amber in 2006, who passed away while waiting to be accepted into the program.
