Family Place Resource Center and Shelter
26% of homeless people in Manchester are children.
In an emergency, they had no child-safe place to go. Until now.
Families in Transition’s Family Place Resource Center and Shelter provides the City of Manchester with a home for 80 parents with 120 children per year. This brand new facility currently houses a new and expanded emergency family shelter, as well as comprehensive resource center specifically designed to meet the needs of homeless families and children in Manchester, NH. The dual purpose nature of the project ensures that families with complex and varied needs are able to quickly and easily access the services that they need to regain housing stability and long-term wellness.
The Family Place Resource Center and Shelter Provides:
- A home for 80 parents with 120 children per year
- Critical healthcare for children and families on-site
- Services to assist continuity in education for homeless children
- Housing Advocacy and Employment Search Support
- Specialized therapeutic preschool for homeless children
- Guaranteed nutritious meals
- A warm place for homeless families with their children to wait when they have no place to go. No more waiting in the police station waiting room or living in their car.
