Merrick House is a Settlement House, a neighborhood center located in Tremont and Clark-Fulton. We respect cultural diversity while encouraging community harmony. Our purpose is to enable and empower residents toutilize the democratic process to promote social justice by: Providing educational, social, and recreational programs; Advocating for the individual, the family and the community; and Supporting other community and governmental programs and services, which are consistent with these ideas. We off program opportunities for children as young as six (6) months of age to elders who are in their 90's. Seniors and at-risk adults have the opportunity to participate in programs which enable them to take charge of their lives and make decisions allowing them to become self-sufficient, more independent, rather than dependent, and involved in setting priorities for their neighborhood. Seniors and at-risk adults are supported in their struggle to remain independent by the agency, thus enabling them to be productive citizens.
Looking for volunteers to assist in all areas of the services which we offer to the community. We want to place volunteers to work with children, youth adult education, and elderly. In addition we are looking for volunteers to assist in community organizing, volunteer coordination, receptionist, secretary, accounting, etc.
