Overview

Merica House is home to 3 women and 2 men with a variety of severe physical disabilities. The Alliance for the Physically Disabled (APD) has helped to make possible the dream of Harry Merica for a home that would allow independent living for severely physically disabled adults. Too often the only option is living out life in a nursing home or other institution. By living together these adults can share the cost of rent, aides, and staff. Many people volunteer time, skills, and resources to truly make Merica House home for these special people.

The APD is a non profit organization committed to creating accessible and affordable housing opportunities with full time personal assistant services for adults with physical disabilities. We are a 501 ( c ) (3) organization. All donations of cash or donations in kind are tax deductible.


We are a proud member of United Way of the National Capital Area #8245.  We are also a member of the Combined Federal Campaign #55797.
