During the month of March, BrownWinick collected items and raised money for House of Mercy and Lighthouse Host Homes and Apartments. Throughout the month, BrownWinick attorneys and staff either purchased raffle tickets for $1 each or donated certain items in exchange for raffle tickets. On Monday, March 31, 2014, at the same time as the firm’s monthly birthday celebration, the firm held a raffle drawing and the lucky winners received gift cards.
House of Mercy works with pregnant, parenting or non-parenting, and adolescent through adult age women by providing support and services such as counseling, education, medical care, transitional housing, meals, transportation, childcare and other skill development support. House of Mercy is one of the state’s largest providers of transitional housing and clinic services for parenting women with addiction.

Lighthouse provides transitional living for primarily homeless, pregnant young women and young parents ages 16 to 25. Participants in the program are allowed to stay at a Host home for up to 2 years.
