The members of LiUNA are truly the pillars of the community, who tirelessly give of themselves and volunteer their money, time and labor to help those in need. Our members value strength in unity and humbly extend this belief into practice in their everyday lives.

Individuals are provided the full continuum of care designed to meet each person’s changing needs and maximize his or her independence, self-determination, interpersonal relationships, and engagement in the community. Through dedicated families, employees, volunteers, supporters and community networks, Misericordia, Heart of Mercy offers an environment that fosters each person’s spirituality, dignity, respect, and quality of life.

The Chicago Laborers’ District Council and its members provide support to Misericordia, Heart of Mercy through charitable donations and volunteerism.
