We hope everyone stays well.

Anyone familiar with Cathy Parr knows that she is very patriotic, as well as friendly.  She goes to D.C. every Memorial Day by herself.   She likes to visit with the Rolling Thunder guys & gals when they are there.  This year she visited some of the Memorials & was asked by a gentleman with the VWMF (Vietnam Women’s Memorial Foundation) to participate in their small ceremony.


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.
