RESTORING THE HUMAN SPIRIT
Actions speak louder than words, and we are dedicated to providing love and support to those in need. As believers in “malice toward none and charity for all,” we’re dedicated to helping those who find themselves in crisis situations. This has meant helping those in the path of natural disasters, funding programming and therapy for victims of domestic abuse, raising money to aid efforts to eradicate human trafficking, and supporting families affected by tragedies like school shootings. A large part of our mission has also involved rescuing, restoring, and rebuilding the lives of Christians and other persecuted religious minorities in the Middle East.

Operation Game Changer March 2017
In our effort to disrupt global human trafficking, Mercury One partnered with DeliverFund in an initiative called Operation Game Changer, which took place during Super Bowl LI and was aimed at uncovering and eradicating human trafficking networks in and around the Super Bowl. During the operation, DeliverFund partnered with Houston law enforcement, providing them with actionable tips that led law enforcement agents to human traffickers and their victims. As a result of DeliverFund’s efforts, 44 human trafficking targets were generated and two national networks were identified, among other successes. Learn more about Mercury One’s involvement with Operation Game Changer below.
National statistics show that a staggering 1 in 3 women and 1 in 4 men will experience domestic violence at some point in their lives. The abuse typically escalates over time and coincides with feelings of fear and shame on the part of the victim, making it difficult for them to come forward and seek help. Mercury One partner Hope’s Door is dedicated to the intervention and prevention of domestic and sexual abuse, providing hope and healing to victims and their children through a number of different programs. In one year alone, the nonprofit served 21,000 meals, provided almost 7,000 hours of counseling, and sheltered over 375 women and children. Learn more about this incredible organization.
