OUR SHELTER HAS MOVED TO A NEW LOCATION!

Now located at First Congregational Church at 177 N. Main Street in Concord

As of December 18th, 2020, CCEH’s Emergency Winter Shelter is operating out of its new location at First Congregational Church of Concord at 177 N. Main Street in Concord. We are thrilled that we were able to find a larger space to return our bed capacity to our normal count of 40 beds. Due to COVID-19 physical distancing requirements, our bed capacity at 238 N. Main Street was reduced to 20 beds.

The Emergency Winter Shelter is open 7 nights a week from December through March. Guests can arrive on property at 6PM and must leave the property by 7AM each morning. The entrance to the Shelter is on the side of the building, off of Washington Street, across from Rollins Ave.

The shelter is a “low barrier” shelter that serves adults, including those with active addictions and felony convictions, so that those in need can sleep inside during dangerously cold winter months.

Open December 2020 through March 2021

Due to the limited number of beds, this shelter is intended to serve people experiencing homelessness who already reside in the greater Concord area.


If you need more information about being a guest at our Emergency Winter Shelter, please call: (603) 715-1208 to speak with CCEH’s Resource Center and Shelter staff.


VOLUNTEER OPPORTUNITIES

Due to Covid-19 we will run the 2020/2021 Emergency Winter Shelter without volunteers. This was an extremely difficult decision, but for everyone’s safety, per CDC guidelines, it is best to reduce the number of people and amount of time together inside a congregate living space. We will welcome volunteers back as soon as it is deemed safe. 


The shelter has begun accepting donations for the upcoming season.

Crucial items that are needed are: 

  • Ibuprofen 
  • Anti-Acids 
  • Cough Drops 
  • Hand Warmers 
  • Tissue Boxes 
  • 13-gallon trash bags 
  • Winter Socks 
  • Ponchos 
  • Gallon Sized Ziplock Bags 
  • Bleach 
  • Toilet Bowl Cleaner 
  • Spray Cleaner 
  • Antibacterial Wipes 
  • Floor Cleaner/Pinesol
