Catholic Charities New Hampshire

2023 Goals:

Our goal in 2023 is to create meaningful change for NH individuals and families struggling with life-altering issues such as poverty, hunger, financial despair, mental health challenges, homelessness, unsafe environments for children and isolation among seniors. Whether it’s a family fighting to make ends meet, a child born into a home with limited resources, or a senior citizen who is struggling to access enough food and other basic essentials, we work to ensure they have every opportunity to overcome the obstacles they face and develop sustainable solutions to move their lives forward. But these opportunities only happen through generous donor support, especially in a time when the demand for our services continues to increase.

Fundraising Events:

We have a fun slate of events in support of our programs, which serve a wide range of NH residents in need! Our festive Mardi Gras Gala is back in person on Saturday, February 11, at the DoubleTree by Hilton in Manchester with dinner, dancing, an auction, raffles and exciting entertainment. Visit for more information. Additionally, Liberty House will be hosting a family-fun Touch-a-Truck Event on May 13 in Manchester, as well as its 9th Annual Veterans Day Breakfast on November 4 at LaBelle Winery in Derry. Our New Generation program, which provides emergency shelter and transitional housing for single mothers and children, will also be hosting the “Mulligans for Moms” Golf Tournament on September 11 at Breakfast Hill Golf Club in Greenland.

We also participate in the AmazonSmile program. Catholic Charities New Hampshire is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization. All donations are tax-deductible to the extent allowed by law. Ninety-four cents of every dollar raised goes directly back into our programs. Visit to learn more.

Volunteer Opportunities:

Catholic Charities New Hampshire always is looking for energetic and talented individuals for various volunteer positions. Opportunities range from delivering food or providing rides for homebound seniors through our CareGivers (Greater Manchester, Greater Nashua and Lakes Region) and Monadnock at Home (Monadnock Region) programs; providing assistance for our Liberty House (serving homeless and community veterans) and New Generation (serving homeless pregnant and single mothers and their children) programs; or assisting at our senior living communities statewide; as well as regular event and administrative support. We accept one-time or ongoing volunteers, with flexible hours and opportunities to assist remotely.
