Moving Lives Forward
For over 75 years, Catholic Charities NH has provided a wide range of programs and services for individuals and families facing unplanned obstacles, unprecedented life challenges and chronic hardship. While we’re being tested like never before with the COVID-19 pandemic, our mission of serving the dynamic needs of individuals and families – and protecting the vulnerable and marginalized – is unbreakable. In fact, it’s stronger than ever.
Since the crisis began last year:
Increase in requests for emergency assistance
Increase in requests for Mental Health Counseling Services
Increase in total food distribution (New Hampshire Food Bank)
Increase in food distribution for homebound seniors (The CareGivers)
Increase in rides to medical appointments (The CareGivers)

Our mission is to respond to those in need with programs that heal, comfort and empower. This carries a different meaning for every child, teen, adult, family and senior with whom we work with.
It means doing all we can to help a two-year-old child and his family keep a roof over their heads. It means instilling confidence in a mother who grew up in a broken home that – yes – she can raise her children in a loving and secure environment. And it means bringing a smile to the face of a young adult – for the first time in many years – as he finally breaks free from a lifelong struggle with trauma and depression.
