Help Our Kids Go Back To School

By Jessica Parker

Our young residents are preparing for a new school year and, at this time, it is uncertain what back to school will look like. Whether the children will be participating in full-time in-person instruction, online classes, or a blended curriculum, their families will still need assistance purchasing school supplies, new clothing, and sneakers for their growing children.

You can help by sponsoring a child and purchasing items like a backpack filled with school supplies, or an outfit and new pair of sneakers, based on the child’s personalized “Back to School Wish List.”

We currently have 7 families with 19 children staying at the shelter, and several families working with our post-shelter case managers in the community, in need of assistance.

If you are interested in sponsoring a child, please contact Kristina Siegenthaler at 603.436.2218 ext. 107 or
