The Campaign for the Crisis Center
The Crisis Center’s building in Concord is old, with outdated systems, an inefficient floor plan, and a kitchen and bathrooms appropriate for a family of four, not for a shelter that regularly houses 13 women and children. The building also hosts office space for all nine of CCCNH’s staff members. The Crisis Center of Central NH was selected as Building on Hope’s nonprofit partner for 2018. Described as “Extreme Home Makeover for nonprofits,” the all-volunteer Building on Hope committee will coordinate the use of primarily in-kind contributions to gut the three-story shelter, renovate it, and nearly double its size from four bedrooms to seven, with 24 beds instead of 13. The Shelter renovation will create a warm and welcoming space that will meet the needs of the women and children seeking refuge in the building, while making good use of every square foot in the building.
