2. everybody is more alike than we are different.
At Merrimack Hall, we firmly believe that every one of us has special needs. Some have special needs on the outside readily visible; some have special needs on the inside. Everyone has the need to feel loved. Everyone has the need to feel accepted.
Please join our efforts to make Huntsville & Madison County the gold-standard for diversity and inclusion by becoming a volunteer, donating or spreading awareness on behalf of our mission.
Additionally, we offer the chance for all of our participants to participate in perennial concerts, performances, and theatrical productions hosted at Merrimack Hall. Each showcase is a comprehensive production with professional sound, lighting and costumes featuring original acts and dance numbers rehearsed in our after school classes.
These performances have an uncanny effect on our participants.
They build priceless amounts of self-confidence and offer multiple physical and cognitive benefits, not to mention bringing a smile from ear-to-ear!
Additionally, we encourage all adults involved in our programs to join our performance team. This is an opportunity to get outside of comfort zones and venture to new, fun places that support our programs and raise awareness on behalf of our mission.
