Radio Coverage for Harbor Homes’ Supportive Services for Veteran Families Program
POSTED ON January 22nd BY
Did you know that veterans make up over 23% of our homeless population? Harbor Homes, along with a grant from the federal government, is working to decrease veteran homelessness by providing housing and supportive services to low-income and homeless veteran households throughout NH. In October 2012, Harbor Homes became a recipient of a Supportive Services for Veteran Families (SSVF) grant. In an on-air discussion with the radio hosts of “Self Empowerment NH” Lori Magoon and Jay Bernier, SSVF Program Manager, Cate Sementa,  discussed the opportunities for veterans in our community to benefit from SSVF connections. Since October, Cate has spearheaded this program with the help of Kevin Fox, an outreach worker to help connect veterans with these services. To learn more about the SSVF Program and the resources available to veterans, please listen to the radio show: To contact Cate, please email her at C.Sementa@harborhomes.org or MORE >
Harbor Care Health and Wellness Center Annual Dental Day of Caring
POSTED ON January 22nd BY PartnershipTeam
Last month, the Harbor Care Health and Wellness Center once again partnered with Dr. Weener of Landmark Dental Care to provide dental treatments to the Greater Nashua homeless community. Forty-five patients were served by Dr. Weener and his staff. The dental treatments provided included cleanings, x-rays,  extractions, root canals, crowns, and minor oral surgery. There was an estimated $20,000 of services provided this day from Landmark Dental Care. Thanks to the generosity of Dr. Weener and staff, all forty-five homeless community members that came to the dental office that day left with big, bright smiles! One patient had chipped her front tooth in half while working years ago. The doctor was able to rebuild her tooth and when she left the dentist’s room she was beaming, smiling with confidence for the first time in years. This is the second Dental Day of Caring that has been MORE >
