- 2017 by the Numbers January 25, 2018 We had a busy and successful year in 2017 helping families rise from homelessness to independence. We are so pleased to report that 83% of our 2017 families graduated to sustainable independence. We served 18 families, comprised of 25 adults and 34 children, this past year. We provided just under 30,000 meals for our families. Our volunteers donated 7,686 hours of time to our program. Our average length of stay was just 313 days, that’s down 15% from two years ago! We are so proud of what these numbers represent; the hard work of our families, the generosity of our donors and volunteers, the dedication of our staff, and the spirit of faith and community that flows through everyone involved! Thank you for your support in 2017 and we look forward to an amazing 2018.

While Matt’s title is new, his history of volunteering at FPGN is not! Matt has been volunteering weekly at FPGN for over 10 years! Matt got involved with the organization through his mom, Brenda, who was a Board of Trustees member and served as our Treasurer for many years. When Brenda had to spend more time on other committments, Matt stayed the course. In the few weeks that he has been on the job he has been reaching out to our current faith communities and has already enlisted several new congregations to support us. He is working to rebuild our volunteer pool and to invigorate our group of volunteers who prepare meals for our families. Please stop by his office, just to the right of the door, and say “Hi!” And better yet, “How can I help?”
- Eastern Bank Day of Service September 22, 2017 Thanks to the amazing team of volunteers from Eastern Bank who came yesterday to prep and paint trim in our upstairs hallways. It looks so much fresher and brighter for our families!!! Their tagline is “Join Us for Good.” We are happy that they joined Us for Good yesterday!
- FIVE Graduations! August 22, 2017 It is an amazing time at Family Promise of Greater Nashua at Anne Marie House with the most graduations that we’ve ever had all at one time! These families have been diligently working our program and are now ready to enjoy sustainable independence! We’re going to be having a graduation party on Monday, August 28th at 6pm to recognize their achievements and cheer them on their way to a bright future. As these families set up their new households, they often need small appliances such as vacuums, toasters, and microwaves. They also need cleaning supplies, brooms/mops, silverware, and pots and pans. If you are able to gift these items to our graduates it would be most appreciated! Gift cards are also always a great graduation gift!
