Renee Moloney: Parenting Guru

Renee Moloney directs a critical component of our program, our parenting classes.  Using STEP, Systematic Training for Effective Parenting, Renee teaches our parents the skills that they need to enhance their relationships with their children. Parents learn to identify misbehavior and to provide  better options for their children. Many children who have experienced homelessness experience behavioral issues so Renee’s efforts help our parents to understand where their children’s actions are coming from and to offer concrete alternatives and more effective ways to discipline. Renee also works with our children directly by age groups to help them to live peacefully together in community. Always with a ready smile and hug, Renee’s dedication to our families is amazing and we are so grateful for her expertise and contributions to our program!

New Volunteers

Have time, talents and treasures to share?  Talk with us about how you can do so at our ‘Home for Now’ through Family Promise of Greater Nashua at Anne-Marie House.

Volunteerism is the foundation of our program at Anne-Marie House, and happens ‘around the clock’ – 24 hours a day/7 days a week/365 days a year. Come when you can, and leave when you must.

Approximately 75 volunteers bring their energy and enthusiasm to share hospitality with our resident families every week: spending time in conversation and play, making and serving the weekday 6pm meal, staying overnight, helping with homework, celebrating birthdays and holidays, assisting with office tasks, joining our maintenance team, choosing chores from our ‘to do list’, supporting fundraisers, coming to Work Days, serving on our committees, and so much more.  Your passion and skills are likely our need!

New volunteers are asked to attend an orientation to learn more about our program, explore volunteer opportunities, tour our facility, and complete necessary paperwork – application, confidentiality agreement and criminal record form.  Anyone under 18 years old is welcome to volunteer, but must be accompanied by a parent or guardian.

Please call our Director of Volunteerism at 883-7338 x3 to schedule your orientation.  You can also email us at volunteering@annemariehouse.org.  We look forward to hearing from you!

Current Volunteers

Thank You!!  You are a blessing, and truly do make a difference.

Peruse our online calendar at www.annemariehouse.org/calendar, talk with your volunteer group Coordinator, or contact our Director of Volunteerism 883-7338 X3 to choose your next volunteer time.  Remember, the calendar is read only.

Consider bringing a family member or friend with you to the next time you volunteer.  Talk with our Director of Volunteerism or your volunteer group Coordinator about scheduling that ‘Come and See’ shadowing experience.  There’s always room for one more on our Volunteer Team!

See you at the house!

In addition to volunteers, financial contributions in any amount are important in making sure our facility, program and families are taken care of. Here are just a few suggested levels and what your donation can do for the children and families living at AMH:

    • $25 buys one year of school supplies for one child
    • $50 provides milk for one week for our families
    • $100 provides meals for one day for all of our residents
