COVID-19 Update

On March 17, Merrymount temporarily moved our Crisis Residential/Respite Program (CR/RP), Family Child Support Program and Family Resource Program services to a virtual format in response to COVID-19.

On June 15, we will begin moving towards providing some in-person support services through our CR/RP while taking all appropriate and necessary precautions as mandated by the Federal and Provincial governments. Our Family Child Support Program and Family Resources Program will continue to provide support to our children and families through virtual means.  We will be taking a gradual approach to our reopening in order to ensure the health and safety of our clients and staff team.

Our crisis telephone line (519-870-2797) is being managed and our staff have access to e-mail and voicemail.

We have also set-up a COVID-19 Resources webpage that features a variety of articles and videos related to our current situation and children’s overall mental health.

Please reach out at any time if we can be of help (519-434-6848) or contact@merrymount.on.ca

How you can help:

Financial donations are needed most.

Although we are challenged by the current COVID-19 situation, Merrymount’s team of experts continue to serve children and families who are struggling, now more than ever, with mental health, trauma, precarious employment, housing, and so much more. We will continue to reach out to our families and provide remote support, advice and direction to those who need it the most.

Your financial support will allow Merrymount to continue our work in the community, as an invisible safety net helping people in their most vulnerable moments.

You can donate online directly through our website www.merrymount.on.ca/donate-now/ or mail cheques payable to Merrymount Children’s Centre (Attention: Kelly Schaus) at 1064 Colborne Street, London ON  N6A 4B3.

Please direct donation inquiries to kschaus@merrymount.on.ca.

Give our community strength by giving to Merrymount.

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

825 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.
