Harbor Homes Wins Annual TD Charitable Foundation Housing for Everyone Affordable Housing Grant Competition, Awarded $100,000 for Veteran’s Housing in Manchester

On 12/14/2012

November 20, 2012Nashua, NHHarbor Homes, Inc. was recently awarded a $100,000 affordable housing grant through the TD Charitable Foundation’s Housing for Everyone grant competition. The grant will be used to support the building of Harbor Homes’ newest Veterans FIRST housing facility on Somerville Street in Manchester, NH.

After completion, 26 homeless veterans and their families will have access to one and two bedroom transitional living and permanent supportive housing apartments within a brand new three story building.  While living in the facility, veterans receive case management, transportation, employment services, and other supportive services customized to meet the unique needs of each household. Working closely with the Manchester VA Medical Center and other health and human service providers, veterans usually graduate from the program in two years or less, moving onto independent, industrious living.

This is the third facility of its kind within the Harbor Homes’ Veterans FIRST program. Buckingham Place and Dalianis House, located in Nashua, currently provide 60 units of transitional housing for homeless veterans, and have a waiting list.

“As many more of our veterans are returning from battle, they find themselves facing economic challenges along with personal struggles, such as Post Traumatic Stress Disorder.  There is a high demand for veteran housing and supportive services, capacity continues to be limited, and our waiting lists are expanding.  Our new facility on Somerville Street is a dream that has taken years to bring to fruition.  The TD Charitable Foundation has generously supported our creation of this critically needed housing for homeless veterans.  Together, we will help military men and women regain their independence and give them a second chance after their selfless service to protect our freedoms.  “We truly appreciate the amazing support of the TD Charitable Foundation”, said Harbor Homes’ president and chief executive officer, Peter Kelleher.

This year’s “Housing for Everyone” theme was Transitional Housing and Homeless Shelters, focusing on projects that will expand the availability of and/or access to transitional housing and/or homeless shelters.
