Harbor Homes’ Newest Veterans FIRST Facility Underway in Manchester

On 07/03/2012

Two weeks ago, Harbor Homes celebrated the first dig at its newest Veterans FIRST housing facility located at 335 Somerville Street in Manchester, New Hampshire. This is Harbor Homes’ first housing project in Manchester.  Once constructed, the new building will contain 26 apartments within three stories. The new facility will provide transitional and permanent housing for homeless male and female veterans, as well as their families. The $5 million project has already raised almost all the funding needed to complete the  project, thanks to significant support from federal and private sources of funds. However, Harbor Homes is still seeking at least $250,000 in community support, and naming opportunities around this effort are available. For more information about sponsorship opportunities for this project, contact Harbor Homes.

Harbor Homes currently operates two Veterans FIRST transitional housing facilities in Nashua, New Hampshire, Buckingham Place and Dalianis House, in addition to affordable, permanent supportive veteran-specific housing in Claremont and Nashua, NH. The Manchester project will bring the total number of Veterans FIRST housing options to 114 units. More than 200 previously homeless veteran households graduated from a Veterans FIRST housing program since 2005, and now live independently.

Many city officials, funders, and community members attended the groundbreaking including Manchester Mayor Ted Gatsas, Peter Kelleher, CEO of Harbor Homes, and Dean Christon of New Hampshire Housing Finance Authority. Harbor Homes is expecting that this project will be completed in April 2013.
