Anne Marie House Receives Grant to Assist with Homelessness in So. NH

I found this article in the Lowell Sun on 8/28/10 with regard to a recent grant award to Anne Marie House, which is located in Hudson, NH. This organization provides services/shelter to homeless folks.

Up to that moment, I hadn’t a clue that there was a homeless service provider in Hudson, NH. This will of course set me on the path to search out all homeless service providers in Southern NH. The primary reason behind that, being a border towns/cities – Lowell, Lawrence, Haverhill, receive many families and individuals from Southern NH into Massachusetts services.  In some cases, police departments from Southern NH communities will drop individuals off at our shelters or drop them off at the edge of town. NH encountered a storm from the State of Maine and HUD, when it was determined that officials in NH were transporting their homeless persons over the border to Maine and leaving the State of Maine to provide services that NH did not wish to/ or could not provide.

Anyhow..here is the article, if you wish not to click through in the above link:

Hudson shelter wins grant

HUDSON, N.H. — Anne Marie House has been awarded two grants from the New Hampshire Charitable Foundation and town of Hudson totaling $22,500, a spokesman for the homeless shelter announced.

Located at 180 Lowell Road on the grounds of Presentation of Mary Academy, the shelter’s mission is to help end local homelessness “one family at a time,” according to Richard Patterson, a member of the board of trustees.

“The New Hampshire Charitable Foundation and town of Hudson have awarded us separate grants of $19,500 and $3,000, respectively,” Patterson said. “Both grants were especially coveted because their unrestricted nature enables them to be flexibly used for operational, capital or other needs at the sole discretion of Anne Marie House.”

Anne Marie House serves Hudson, Pelham, Nashua, Windham, Londonderry, Amherst, Milford, Brookline, Hollis, Merrimack and Litchfield.

“Tireless efforts by Anne Marie House to end family homelessness throughout greater-Nashua” were recognized in July by a proclamation issued by both the New Hampshire Charitable Foundation and town of Hudson.
