No Matter What, We Are Here to Help
While life as we know it has dramatically changed with the COVID-19 crisis, Catholic Charities New Hampshire remains here for you – not just now, but also for the days ahead. Assisting those in crisis – from all walks of life and backgrounds – is what we have been doing every day for the past 75 years.
All of our programs continue to remain operational. Our unwavering commitment to helping the most vulnerable is unbroken. While our staff is working remotely in virtual settings, we are easily accessible and ready to guide you on the path forward in a safe and convenient manner.
Available services include:
Emergency assistance and case management for those facing intense hardship and uncertainties. Working remotely, our caseworkers are ready to help provide various forms of assistance as well as referrals to help with a multitude of current stressors.
Telehealth counseling (phone and online) for those struggling with anxiety, stress, isolation, grief and the changing dynamics of life. We help ease pain, nurture positive coping skills and heal from distress. These services include a sliding scale program for lower-income and uninsured clients.
High-quality legal consultation and representation for a variety of immigration needs such as naturalization, asylum and family reunification. Our Immigration attorneys and BIA accredited representatives are fully functioning, accepting new clients and helping current clients on the path to citizenship and a better life.
Food distribution, through more than 400 partner agencies, for thousands of food-insecure households statewide. Busier than ever during this time, the Food Bank is sourcing food and ensuring safe and secure pickups for our partner agencies or individuals at a food drop. Multiple mobile food drops have occurred or are in the works to get product to the North Country and other hard-hit areas of the state.
Monthly food delivery, rides to essential medical appointments and emotional support calls for homebound and disabled seniors in the Greater Manchester and Greater Nashua areas. We help seniors avoid lives of isolation – which is even more critical at a time like this – and honor their desire to remain living at home. The volunteer-driven program is following proper sanitation, food packaging and social distancing precautions to keep our clients safe.
Pregnancy and parenting education for parents, many living in poverty and without the knowledge to best welcome and provide for their children. We equip them with the skills to build loving, stable and safe homes, while reducing childhood stressors and preventing abuse. We are currently providing support through telephone and online settings.
Food delivery, check-in calls and a wide range of support services for seniors across the Monadnock Region. We help foster the valuable connections to prevent isolation and help those we serve thrive in their own homes and communities. While services are normally available through a nominal membership subscription fee, we are accepting temporary memberships at no cost during the COVID-19 pandemic.
Supporting homeless and at-risk veterans through substance-free transitional housing, job placement and other forms of assistance. We help these veterans heal from invisible wounds and build more stable lives.
Assistance and guidance for birth parents seeking to place their child for adoption, adoptive couples needing a home study or post placement services, and individuals seeking reunification or background information for their own adoption.
Academic, social, emotional and behavioral services for students in the Greater Rochester area who display severe behaviors in the typical classroom setting. We help children feel safe, understand their behaviors and begin to thrive. We are currently operating via remote instruction through the end of May.
Person-centered, compassionate care for seniors statewide. Our skilled nursing and rehabilitation facilities throughout New Hampshire offer various short-term and long-term care services, as well as assisted living, independent living and memory care.
