Meet Abby & Henry

When Odesha, a Mercy Housing resident services coordinator, heard eight-year-old Henry crying one day during Out-of-School Time, she could only offer comfort when he shared that he’d recently lost his mom. Over the next few months, Odesha found herself thinking about that exchange, wishing there was more she could have done. 

Then in December, a local police officer asked if there was a family that could use a little extra help for the holidays. Knowing how hard 2023 had been for Henry and his little sister Abby, the team immediately recommended them.

Soon, brand-new bikes and toys were delivered to their home, where they live with their great-grandmother Helen. Henry and Abby couldn’t contain their excitement when they found out the gifts were for them. 

“We often hear children saying that their parents cannot afford to take them on field trips, or that their parents are always working to pay the bills,” Odesha shared.

“It is a privilege to be valued as Mercy Housing ambassadors, to share our knowledge and care, but, most importantly, to create great memories for the children and families in our community.”
