Crisis Residential/Respite Program

A mom was suffering from bipolar disorder, post traumatic stress disorder and ADHD. Her medications were being adjusted and she needed a safe place for her preschool child to stay during this process. Merrymount provided short-term overnight care for the child.

The Crisis Residential/Respite Program provides care to children in situations where the family is experiencing stress, crisis or transition problems which make them unable to provide appropriate child care on a 24 hour/day basis. The program provides services to meet children’s needs over a temporary period of family instability and to work with the family to cope with the present crisis and to plan for adequate care for the children upon their return home.
