About Merryman House Domestic Violence Center

“There’s a Place For You”

Merryman House Domestic Crisis Center is committed to improving the lives of those affected by domestic violence: women, men, and children. We are the state-designated and only certified domestic violence program in the Purchase Area Development District serving Ballard, Calloway, Carlisle, Fulton, Graves, Hickman, Marshall, and McCracken counties.

Our campus includes a 36-bed emergency shelter, a central administration/counseling and dining area, and outreach and counseling services buildings. We have been privileged to serve Paducah and the surrounding counties for more than forty years.

It is our purpose and passion to answer calls for help, assist victims to find refuge from the risk of death and serious physical injury, provide food and shelter, support survivors in court, and help them become financially stable and visibly strong. 

Get Help

Are you, or someone you know, a victim of domestic violence?  If you or a loved one is fleeing a violent situation or is in immediate need of help, please call 270-443-6001 (available 24/7/365). Trauma survivors and others seeking non-emergency services can also reach us at 270-443-6001.

Give Back

 We believe in a world where the needs of these survivors are openly addressed. We believe in a community-based system of support and encouragement system that meets the comprehensive advocacy and recovery needs required by these survivors to recover and live successful, empowered lives. Our successes are the combined efforts of people like you who say, “YES, I want to help!”
