Fellowship Housing Opportunities, Inc.
Providing safe, affordable housing with support to members of our community who live with mental illness
Fellowship Housing Opportunities, Inc. administration and board of directors collaborated and agreed on the following strategic goals through 2025:
- to diversify our revenue stream and programs in order to support our deeper mission impact and long-term sustainability.
- to increase capacity to support the growing needs of the community with decent, safe and alternative housing options.
- to develop and grow resources in order to better support resident needs and gain recognition as a leader in the field of affordable housing.
- to develop and nurture a strong team at all levels of the organization and become known as an employer of choice.
Once again we will partner with Red River Theater in Concord, NH, as the venue for our Third Annual Movie and Panel Discussion Event. In 2022, we viewed part of the movie “Ernie and Joe: Crisis Cops,” and community partners joined us for a discussion on crisis intervention with individuals living with severe and persistent mental illness. Plans are underway for our annual 5K, which will take place in the Fall of 2023. We will team up with Intown Concord by adding the Home Run 5K as a precursor to their Halloween Howl event.
Our primary financial giving opportunity is to support the expansion of our housing units either through acquisition or renovation. Giving to our endowment fund with NH Charitable Foundation insures that our core services of housing and support will be sustained in the future. Our Hope Chest was established in memory of a long-term employee for a resident of our Licensed Community Residence to assist specifically in activities, which will engage and integrate the resident into community living. Giving Tuesday donations are used to purchase gifts for the holidays for all of our residents, so no one is forgotten during that season.
Fellowship Housing Opportunities, Inc. works with volunteers to serve on its board of directors. Current term limits are three years with the opportunity to renew once to serve another three-year term after which the volunteer must take at least one year off. Additionally, we work with volunteers for our fundraising events which include our Annual Home Run 5K and our Annual Movie and Panel Discussion Event. There also exists volunteer opportunities to assist or lead a program event with residents such as a craft project, cooking project or a teaching lesson to assist with activities for daily living.
