  • Student Uses Creative Solution to help our Families July 26, 2018 by Amy Freise

    Annemarie Edvalson wanted to make a difference in her community and she knew just how to do it!  Edvalson, a recent graduate of Souhegan High School, works part-time at the Gap Outlet in Merrimack.  She saw that they had lots of brand new clothes that had been deeply discounted in the clearance section.  Over time she used her employee discount to purchase these items-for adults and kids-at an even greater discount.  Then she dropped everything off to us!  These brand new clothes make terrific presents for birthdays and holidays for our kids OR they could be interview clothes for our parents.  Thank you Annemarie for thinking of us and using double-discounts to help!

  • 2017 by the Numbers January 25, 2018 by Amy Freise

    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.
