The mission of
Shelter FromThe Storm
is to provide
transitional housing
and support services
for the homeless.


Your contributions of funds, time or household items make it possible to help guests survive the critical weeks or months until they can reestablish an independent living situation and return to self-sufficiency.

Gift Idea: 


We also have "gift cards" available. What a wonderful way this is to honor friends and family for birthdays, anniversaries, holidays, Mother's Day, Father's Day,...while at the same time reaching out a helping hand to community members who need it !

  • Instead of buying a gift for a friend or family member, you can donate any amount of money to Shelter From The Storm in the recipient's name.

    • The recipient will receive a nice card indicating that the amount has been donated in their name.



Volunteers at SFTS fulfill many roles, some of which are described below. If you would like to explore volunteering, please call Linda Harris at (603) 532-8222.

  • Building and Needs: Prepare apartments for new guest(s) . Pick up donations; move furniture in and out of units. Got a truck, van or strong back? We always need your help!  

  • Transportation: Guests may need transportation to meetings, appointments, work or school.

  • Community Friends: Friendship, childcare, home management skills, stretching the grocery dollars, advocacy, and more...maybe just a cup of coffee!

  • Special Events/Fundraising: SFTS sponsors special events - help to coordinate those events. New ideas are always welcome!
