Giving – Beyond the Capital Campaign

“There’s (Still) a Place for You”

It Started with a Vision for the Future

The Merryman House launched its first-ever capital campaign in 2016 with the goal of raising $3.7 million dollars to purchase 13 acres of land and expand to a 36-bed emergency shelter for victims of domestic violence and their children. We opened the doors to our new facility on December 20, 2017. In the summer of 2019, YOU, the community, completed our goal!

But, the work is not done. Our advocates and staff serve more than 1,000 survivors of domestic violence each year. Please consider helping us continue this work by continuing to give. Read below for the easiest way to set up recurring gifts.

Current Needs

Community members often ask us how they can give to a need we have right now. Of course, financial gifts to our operating budget are always needed and welcome. However, there are also physical needs that we are happy to share. Below is that list. Please contact us if you have any questions at all about how to donate.
