We are unbelievably grateful to share the WONDERFUL news that we found a larger space to temporarily move our Winter Shelter and Resource Center! Thanks to CARES Act funds that were allocated to NH homeless shelters to modify operations due to COVID-19, we just purchased the First Congregational Church of Concord!

Thankfully, we will be able to go back to accommodating up to 40 people in our Emergency Winter Shelter and about 50 people at a time at our daytime Resource Center! HUGE thanks to everyone at First Church, Tenley Callaghan & her team at Cleveland, Waters and Bass, P.A., and Brenda Litchfield at Concord Commercial Real Estate for working with us over the past few months to make this a reality.

Starting Friday, Dec. 18th, the Emergency Winter Shelter will be operating at the new location – 177 N. Main Street. On Monday, January 4th, the Resource Center will open here. We are so relieved to be able to go back to providing services (safely) indoors to the same number of people as before the pandemic during this extra challenging winter.
