Emergency Housing is always in need of basic houshold items to support the families staying with us. You can help these families by visiting our wish list and donating items or by purchasing items that we need directly through MyRegistry. Thank you for supporting the Friends Emergency Housing Program.

Youth Mentoring and Emergency Housing got into the spirit of the season and had lots of fun!
Youth Mentoring Coordinator, Maureen Desmond, gives tips to the pumpkin decorating crowd. Our volunteers and their mentees enjoyed the evening very much!
We extend thanks to Rossview Farms for large variety of festive pumpkins.
We had some excited superheros and ghouls at our family shelter enjoy trick-o-treating and the candy that followed.
Last year, the Friends Emergency Housing Program served close to 100 people, more than 50% of them children. We were there for these families in crisis and you can be there too. To help make a difference during Hunger & Homeless Awareness Week, we came up with 5 ways YOU can help those in need.
"A friend isn't about who you've known the longest. It's about who walked into your life, said 'I'm here for you', and proved it." - From a Shelter Resident
Friends RSVP volunteers were representing Senior Corp when they jumped in to answer the call for aid at the NH Response to Help Puerto Rico at the State House in early October.
