What’s Going On at Merryman House

Special events are some of the easiest ways to get involved at Merryman House! Whether you are looking to support our fundraisers, help us raise awareness of intimate partner violence and our free and confidential services, or would simply like to share our needs with others, we are glad you are here!

Survivor Café

If you have experienced intimate partner violence and are looking for domestic violence education or just support from others who have been through the same things, you are invited to any of our Survivor Cafés. The events are free, confidential and open to all survivors of intimate partner violence. No need to register! You can find our upcoming Café dates and locations on Facebook or by calling our hotline.

If you need individualized support and/or are looking to flee an unsafe relationship, please call our 24/7 hotline at 800-585-2686. Current clients can find a full list of support groups and workshops in our Client Portal. Your advocate can give you the login information to the Client Portal.

Fundraising Events

2023 PaDucky Derby Logo white

Adopt a Duck. Save a Life.

The Merryman House Domestic Crisis Center held its 9th Annual PaDucky Derby at Bob Noble Park’s Montgomery Lake in Paducah, KY, on Oct. 21, 2023.  All proceeds from the PaDucky Derby fund our mission and help meet the needs of victims of intimate partner abuse and their dependents. Each duck adopted goes directly to saving, building and changing the lives of those affected by domestic violence.

Shop & Share Logo jpg

Shop & Share is a one-day, statewide donation drive benefitting Merryman House and the other state-designated domestic violence shelters across Kentucky. It is a partnership between the Kentucky First Lady’s Office, Kroger, and ZeroV. During the event, shoppers are asked to shop for what they need and share an item with their local domestic violence program. The event is usually held on the Saturday before the Super Bowl, and we always need a large number of volunteers to help us staff each local Kroger and collect donations!

Merryman House is always touching my heart with how much it does to help those desperately in need of recovery and self-esteem. So many lives are saved through the Merryman House Programs. I am thankful that God has reached out to me to be beneficial to this organization and its great efforts to successfully enrich and restore health and faith in those whose needs are fulfilled at Merryman House.
