One family’s story of caring and support Kari and Tim McAteer were at the end of their rope. They had three daughters at home, twin four-year-olds and a two-year-old. Kari was pregnant. In the fifth month, her water broke and she had to be hospitalized. There was no family nearby and Tim’s employer couldn’t extend his leave any further. Fortunately a social worker in the hospital told Recently the McAteers were looking forward to the birth Kari about Merrymount. It wasn’t easy to send the of their fifth daughter. The girls visited Merrymount often girls the first time, Kari admits. “As a parent, you during the pregnancy, so that Kari could get the rest she think that nobody can care for your children as well needed.

Merrymount took the other girls while I stayed in hospital with the baby.” Eventually the girls started school and daycare, but Merrymount continued to be a source of support and practical help. The girls would spend time at the Centre, when needed, to give their parents a respite break from the stresses of raising a busy young family.

Over the last 12 years, while I have been the Director at Rotholme Women’s and Family Shelter, Merrymount Children’s Centre has been one of our key stakeholders. One of the first things when a new family needs shelter we do is to try and understand some of the complex reasons that contributed to the family living in poverty and what has lead them to lose their housing. When our caseworkers look for resources to support families in crisis one of the first referrals they make is to Merrymount Children’s Centre. Many of our children have already been a part of their wonderful array of groups and services. however, for others it is a chance to link them with an agency that prioritizes doing everything it can from a client centered, strengths based approach supporting vulnerable parents and their children by building coping skills and resiliency so they can survive and thrive as viable families. Families report to us that the parent relief they receive from Merrymount Children’s Centre both from day programs and overnight stays is a real “life saver”. In the midst of everything falling apart, they tell us that this time helps them to sort out their situation so they can move forward again. They also rave about the practical help they get from the nurse Practitioner at Merrymount. They have told us that they feel safe leaving their children at Merrymount Children’s Centre. Those who have accessed groups and parental supports and even the supervised access services have told us they do not feel judged but are treated respectfully and helped to become better parents. Merrymount Children’s Centre has a proven track record for excellent service and community partnership. Thus we look forward to them continuing to provide a full range of their services to make London safer for our high-risk families and their children.
