New Generation Receives NHCF Grant to Combat Homelessness

New Generation, a program of Catholic Charities NH, received a $20,000 grant from the New Hampshire Charitable Foundation to support the program’s mission of breaking the cycle of homelessness among single mothers and children. The grant was made possible by gifts from the Elizabeth B. Carter Fund.

With the grant funding, New Generation will provide safe shelter, transitional housing and stabilization services to more local families facing homelessness due to domestic abuse, substance use and mental health challenges. These programs target the root causes of homelessness by providing comprehensive support, equipping parents with the tools to achieve transformational changes in their lives, such as financial and housing stability, stable employment, and creating nurturing environments for their children.

“We are deeply grateful to the New Hampshire Charitable Foundation for their profound commitment to improving communities across New Hampshire, and in this case, joining our efforts to reduce the number of local families facing homelessness,” said Elsy Cipriani, executive director of New Generation. “With this support, we will be able to continue to serve a growing number of local families, guiding them from homelessness and difficult life situations to brighter and more stable futures.”

Approximately 90 percent of families in New Generation’s shelter over the past year gained permanent housing, and 90 percent of families participating in the program’s stabilization services maintained their housing for a year, preventing common reoccurrences of homelessness.
