How We Help

The most beautiful people I have ever known are those who have known defeat, known suffering, known struggle, known loss and have found their way out of the depths. These people have an appreciation, sensitivity and an understanding of life that fills them with compassion, gentleness and a deep loving concern. Beautiful souls of people do not just happen; it’s experience through journey. My upmost gratitude and respect is with the Merryman House in Paducah, Kentucky. – SH
