The ultimate goal of
Merrymount is to provide
supports and services so that families can stay together.

Our Programs

Every family has its own strengths, even at the most difficult times.
We can help you build on those strengths, provide resources, counselling, emergency child care and support the navigation of difficult life circumstances. Our trained staff is here to help you, guide you and support your decisions.
