Family and Child Support Program

A single mom with 2 preschool sons who have very high needs and extremely active behaviours so much so that they are often out of control, needed to search for housing and attend appointments. This was next to impossible when accompanied by her children. Merrymount provided care for the children while the mom looked for housing.

The Family and Child Support Program provides care to children whose families are experiencing an emergency, crisis, stress, and/or disruptive situations and are in need of non-traditional care.

The program operates 7 days a week, 24 hours a day.

The program focuses on helping children discover their strengths as individuals and enhance their resiliency skills as they work through various issues by accepting situations that have transpired, coping with frustrations, and identifying, labeling & expressing their feelings towards these situations.

Merrymount provides a physical environment with schedules, and routines which play an important role in helping the children and their families feel safe, comfortable, and have a sense of belonging.

Our goal is to provide a safe, secure, and predictable environment to support the children during this time of unpredictability.
