Phase one for building a Emergency Winter Shelter and for our Safe Spaces Campaign was to raise the funds for the one time expense of creating the facility:

Thanks to the NH Housing Finance Authority’s funding grant of $250,000 and the purchase of $345,000 in CDFA State Tax Credits by 19 community minded businesses we are the proud owners of our property at 238 North Main Street and construction is almost complete!

The Rotary Club of Concord  kicked off the Private Donations towards the building of the Shelter with a gift of $50,000, and at this time our Private Donations Goal for the building of the shelter HAS BEEN REACHED!!

There is no parking available at the Resource Center. Parking is available nearby on Franklin Street, at St. Peter’s Church on North State Street (access from North State or from Franklin), and at First Congregational Church accessed via Washington Street (eastbound one way). For those with difficulty walking, the Coalition has permission to drop people off at Friendly’s, across the street from the resource center, but attendees are asked not to park there. Please do NOT park, or drop people off, at our immediate neighbors, the Concord Mart and the Concord  Car Care, as this is very disruptive to their business.
