Our focus is to help children by supporting their families in times of crisis and transition.
8,000 families served each year
30 education and prevention programs for adults and children
24 hours of continuous, overnight, short-term care for children
18 beds that are full each night with children who cannot be with their families because of crisis
785 intakes completed each year for our 24 hour programs
$46,000,000 Merrymount is a smart, economic investment. $1 spent on preventative programming (like the work Merrymount is doing) is worth $7 of more intrusive and expensive costs. The multiplier effect on Merrymount’s $6.6 million operating budget represents $46 million to London’s community.
