This 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. This program operates 7 days per week, 24 hours per day. Children can participate in the program according to family needs for as little as one hour of care and up to 23 hours of care in a 24 hour period.

This program focuses on helping children discover their strengths as individuals and enhance their resiliency skills. They work through various issues and challenges that have transpired, cope with frustrations, and identify, label & express their feelings towards these situations. Merrymount provides a physical environment with schedules and routines that play an important role in helping 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 children during this time of transition.

“My kids are learning quite a bit from Merrymount. They are open and friendly, with better social skills. Merrymount has helped to stabilize the whole family.”
