POSTED ON October 31st BY PartnershipTeam
The holidays are right around the corner and the Partnership for Successful Living is all ready preparing for the 12th Annual Thanksgiving Dinner. Hosted at Welcoming Light’s The Institute, a Thanksgiving feast for any community members that might be living on the streets, in a shelter, couch surfing, or are down on their luck will be offered on November 20,2012, 11:30 am to 2:30 pm at 45 High Street in Nashua. At last year’s celebration, over 350 people gathered together to share a bountiful meal, wonderful music, and companionship. To accommodate the large numbers, Harbor Homes is hoping community members will assist by donating desserts, providing canned cranberry sauce and vegetables, volunteering to clean-up, or by making donations to offset the cost of food and supplies. We would like to thank all of those who have all ready responded to our call of action. This celebration MORE >

Church Donates to Residents of Harbor Homes
POSTED ON October 12th BY PartnershipTeam
August 2012 – Community Chapel of Nashua, New Hampshire has a summer youth group that was willing to spend some of their summer break to create much needed “back to school” packages that will generously be given to children living with their parents at the emergency, transitional, and permanent supportive housing of the Partnership for Successful Living. The donated packages include notebooks, pencils, markers, pens and all the essentials needed for the first day back to school. Donations were brought into the Partnership for Successful Living by a group of smiling children who also remembered that the summer is not over yet. So, they brought some “fun” kits for the families in our shelters to give them a chance to do some summer activities, like drawing pictures on the sidewalk with some new chalk before school starts. A huge “thank you” from all of us at the Partnership for your MORE >

The Day of Caring is a national campaign in which volunteers from businesses, churches, schools, hospitals and more, get involved in much-needed community service projects . In Greater Nashua, this year’s campaign allowed volunteers from BAE, People’s United Bank and the Southern New Hampshire Medical Center to come into two of our Partnership agencies to spread the joy of caring. Maple Street Emergency Shelter of Harbor Homes was helped with the installation of shelving in our guests’ closets, which has allowed them to store personal belongings in a more organized way. Volunteers also cleaned the walls of one room in Maple Street that had been smoked-damaged.
