Dear God, thank you for all creation.

Mercy Homes: An interview with Pulte Family Foundation’s President, Nancy Pulte Rickard

“The concepts of ‘family’ and ‘home’ are at the core of our mission,” says Nancy Pulte Rickard, President of the Pulte Family Charitable Foundation. “Whether it is helping kids in crisis in Chicago find a safe harbor or migrant families in Immokalee, Florida get out of grossly overcrowded container houses, or helping people get out of living in garbage dumps in developing countries—this is what we aspire to do….the children whom Mercy Home serve certainly represent an increasing population of vulnerable people. Standing up for the underdog and the less fortunate—those values were important to my dad.”
