Businesses work to end homelessness

I am writing with a big shout out and thank you to the business community of Greater Concord! Nineteen businesses stepped up and partnered with the Concord Coalition to End Homelessness on business tax credits through CDFA, supporting the construction of a winter shelter for those most in need in our community.

Together, Merrimack County Savings Bank, Binney Media, Eastern Bank, Cleveland, Waters and Bass, P.A., East Coast Electronic Material Supply, Foothills Physical Therapy, Full Circle Consulting, Gibson’s Bookstore, Grappone Automotive Group, The Hodges Companies, Hennessey & Vallee, Logical Innovations, Louis Karno & Company, Orr and Reno, P.A., Rath Young and Pignatelli, The Rowley Agency, Salon Systems Partners, Sulloway and Hollis, and White Mountain Gourmet Coffee, have donated $345,000 to the Safe Spaces Campaign, almost 22 percent of our total goal of $1.63 million!

This three-year effort will provide funding for the creation of a permanent space for a “low barrier” winter shelter, and three years of operating support for all of our programs, including the shelter, Housing First Concord and the Concord Homeless Resource Center.

Join in to help us reach the finish line! Businesses and individuals can make a gift online today to improve our community by donating to the Safe Spaces campaign at concordhomeless.org.

Thank you,

The Rev. Michael

board chairman,
