Ascentria Care Alliance

Empowering People. Strengthening Communities.

2022 Goals:

  • Develop community based partnerships with funders and other providers to provide client directed solutions that move people toward independence.
  • Identify and develop funding sources that will allow for expanded wraparound services for senior citizens, homebound individuals or those with a disability who wish to remain independent in their own homes.
  • Expand the availability of Good News Garage transportation solutions, in collaboration with the State of NH and other partners.
  • Capitalize on the expansive array of Language Bank interpretation and translation
  • Continue to attract and retain mission driven staff, through the lens of diversity, equity and inclusion.

Fundraising Events:

In 2022 Ascentria will be celebrating our 150th year of providing a diverse offering of social services to support teen parents, unaccompanied minors, low-income families in need of transportation, immigrants and refugees, seniors, people with cognitive disabilities and those who are managing mental health challenges. This celebration will include special events and special appeals to support current and new, innovative initiatives.

Giving Opportunities:

Individuals or corporations interested in making a donation or exploring gifts of stock, monthly giving, planned giving, sponsorship opportunities or employee matching gift programs are invited to contact our development department at 508-330-1238. Donations are gratefully accepted year-round at A unique way to give is to donate your old or unused vehicle to our Good News Garage program where it will be refurbished and awarded to individuals and families in need of reliable transportation, which helps empower them to move out of poverty and into financial independence and social stability.

Volunteer Opportunities:

Ascentria volunteers find their work to be impactful, interesting and rewarding.
