We are a Qualified Partner of Granite United Way. When you give to a United Way campaign at your place of work, you can specify your gift for Family Promise of Greater Rockingham County using code 867498. Please do!

Our Mission is to help children and their families experiencing homelessness in NH get back on their feet.

Our Vision is that every family has a home, a livelihood, and a chance to build a better future together.

We Run a Program to Help Homeless Children

It’s called Interfaith Hospitality Network (IHN) and serves Salem, Derry, and 14 surrounding towns in southern New Hampshire.

The Network, or IHN, provides a safe place for homeless families with children to turn for food, shelter, and social services. Participating congregations of any faith offer guidance, encouragement, overnight stays, and meals, while preserving the dignity of families as they take steps to regain independence.

Why? There is no homeless shelter of any kind in Salem or Derry. There are at least 158 homeless families in Salem, Derry, and 14 surrounding towns in western Rockingham County.
