Where Will You Find Your Place?

Thank you for your interest in joining our mission!  There are a number of volunteer opportunities for individuals and groups throughout the year. Whether you have just a few hours one time or you want to volunteer on a consistent schedule, we would love to talk with you. Below you will find different areas in which we place volunteers, and our application. Once you submit an application, our Community Engagement Ambassador will reach out and set up a call with you to get started.

If you’re interested in keeping up with our pop-up volunteer and physical item needs, you are also invited to join our Facebook group, Help Needed at the Merryman House!

I show up for child and adult survivors at the Merryman House because I believe that all people, regardless of age, can heal and grow after they have endured trauma like domestic violence. It’s my honor to come alongside the Merryman House in their mission to save, build, and change the lives of the children and adults they serve.
