Harbor Care


2022 Goals:

Over the past four decades Harbor Care has been at the forefront, taking on some of the most pressing challenges facing our community: severe mental illness, chronic and veteran homelessness, HIV/AIDS, the opioid epidemic and COVID-19. In 2022 we are focused on three key priorities:

  • Ending veteran homelessness in NH
  • Ending chronic homelessness in greater Nashua
  • Continued response to COVID-19, including vaccination of vulnerable populations at our health center for the homeless

Fundraising Events:

Dignity of Home Event — Winter is here and our outreach teams are racing to reach people living outdoors, in cars and other unstable situations. Dignity of Home is a 100-day virtual event, during the coldest months of the year, to raise money and provide stable housing and critical supports to individuals and families.
