Manchester, NH – On Tuesday August, 18, 2015, Congressman Guinta (NH-01) visited Families in Transition’s newest housing development facility on Lake Avenue in Manchester, NH. The Family Place Resource Center and Shelter will provide transitional housing to homeless families across New Hampshire and also includes such critical services as a healthcare clinic, preschool, and will help facilitate employment opportunities to assist families in achieving financial independence.
"Dating back to my time as Mayor, I have been a forceful advocate for eliminating homelessness. This is a multi-pronged approach, combating substance abuse, ensuring access to affordable housing, and promoting independence and well-being. I will continue to do all that I can to combat homelessness across the Granite State, and I applaud Families in Transitions on the development of the Family Place Resource Center and Shelter and their efforts to address homelessness and the many other needs that accompany it.”
Congressman Guinta has helped lead efforts to address the current challenges of homelessness throughout the Granite State by supporting H.R.251, the “Home for Heroes Act of 2015.” H.R. 251 establishes a special assistant from the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) to ensure fair treatment and access to HUD’s housing and homeless assistance programs.
