CCNH Crisis Fund
Earlier this month we launched the CCNH Crisis Fund to help New Hampshire residents who are facing extraordinary burdens and uncertainty during this trying time. Thanks to your INCREDIBLE generosity, we are just shy of our goal of raising $250,000! Donations to the Fund provide emergency financial relief for individuals, food assistance for homebound and isolated seniors, and mental health teletherapy for those experiencing difficulties. There’s still time to make a gift today! Learn more.
As the COVID-19 crisis continues to take shape, the demand for our services is greater than ever before. Daily requests for assistance are up 145% vs. pre-crisis levels. More individuals are reaching out for help with food, housing, transportation, energy and so much more. We are here to answer every call – and work as hard as we can to provide hope for those who need it most during this challenging time. This work is made possible because of your support!
We want to send our heartfelt appreciation to all those keeping us safe during this challenging time, including first responders, healthcare workers, grocery store workers and the many more making selfless sacrifices during this time. This includes many of our incredible employees – from our skilled nursing facilities statewide to the New Hampshire Food Bank to the CareGivers and all other programs – being the guiding hand for those who most need it during this unprecedented time. We cannot thank you enough - you are the best!
Your Impact: 121,000 Lives Transformed
