The Way Home

2019 Goals:

Now commemorating our 30th year of service, The Way Home is an enduring nonprofit dedicated to helping low-income households obtain and sustain safe, affordable housing throughout the state of New Hampshire. Since 1988, we have assisted more than 21,000 homeless and high-risk families, individuals, veterans and special needs clients with their housing needs. When designing our programs, The Way Home looks first to empower our clients in need. Over the past 30 years, this has meant helping them increase their resourcefulness by providing more financial literacy classes, housing counseling and coaching, steps to success coaching, healthy home education, landlord/tenant rights and other life skills classes. Our vision is to continue as an innovative, grassroots organization committed to creatively helping those with the least resources increase access, raise hope and build self-esteem.  We believe in implementing a “housing first” approach, which provides secure housing with the support they need to make a difference in their lives. 

Fundraising Events:

Each year, The Way Home is pleased to invite the community to support and celebrate our mission through impactful and entertaining special events. One of our legacy activities is the 10th Annual Freedom Ride, a motorcycle-fueled event that encourages enthusiasts to “Ride With A Reason!” because everyone deserves the freedom of a home! We also hold several other special activities including spring and fall fund drives. On Friday, November 30, 2018 you can join us at There’s No Place Like Home 30th Celebration, where we commemorate the anniversary of our nonprofit agency, with a dinner recognizing staff and volunteers, as well as a silent auction and comedy show. Sponsorship opportunities are available by contacting Bianka Beaudoin at 603-218-1458 or or to purchase tickets to the event go to

Giving Opportunities:

Like all nonprofits, The Way Home relies upon foundation grants, corporate giving and individual donations and contributions. Gifts can be designated to an area project or family, or made to an area of greatest need (unrestricted). Beyond financial contributions, The Way Home also accepts donations of non-perishable food and household items. For details and information, please contact Bianka Beaudoin at 603-218-1458 or via email at

Volunteer Opportunities:

Volunteers have long served as the bedrock of The Way Home. From board and committee service to facility projects, to student internships and other activities, there are lots of ways to support our agency with “people power!” Please contact us to learn more.
