I appreciate the help I received from MERF for my vocal surgery. Not only did they provide financial assistance, MERF also provided manpower and promotional consideration for a benefit to help with medical expenses. It is comforting to know there are people willing to make a difference in our lives. MERF is a valuable resource for the Lousiville music community and anyway I can help and or support I will." - Billy Stoops
"When I received assistance from MERF it was a very difficult time in my life, unsure how I was going to make ends meet, a friend went to MERF for me and it truly helped put the beans on the table.
