ABOUT THE WAY HOME

HELPING THOSE WITH THE GREATEST NEED FIND THE WAY HOME

The Way Home, a non-profit dedicated to helping low-income households obtain and sustain safe, affordable housing throughout the state of New Hampshire.  Since 1988, we have assisted more than 21,000 homeless and high risk families, individuals, veterans and special needs clients with their housing needs.

 Our Mission and Vision statements speak of creatively helping those with the fewest resources. When designing our programs, The Way Home looks first to empower our clients in need. Over the past 29 years, this  has meant helping them increase their resourcefulness by providing more financial literacy classes, housing counseling and coaching, steps to success coaching, healthy home education, landlord/tenant rights and other life skills classes.

Our Vision is to continue as an innovative, grassroots organization committed to creatively helping those with the least resources increase access, raise hope, and build self-esteem.  We believe in implementing a “housing first” approach, which provides secure housing with the support they need to make a difference in their lives.

As a grassroots organization, we draw our strength from the community we serve.  Your support makes The Way Home’s efforts possible.
