PLYMOUTH -- Military veterans who once faced homelessness are finding permanent homes in Plymouth, thanks in part to a grant from the New Hampshire Electric Co-op Foundation.
“They have done so much to assure we were safe, secure and free. They should have a home,” said Sen. Maggie Hassan.
The $10,000 grant is supporting Harbor Homes’ construction of Boulder Point, a 30-unit building that recently began welcoming its first group of income-qualified veterans.
“The NHEC Foundation is thrilled to be a key supporter of this project that will assist more than 30 veterans and their family members,” said Sharon Davis, chairman of the NHEC Foundation board. “When we read about this project that has been in the works for many years now, we knew it needed and deserved our support.”
Boulder Point is a 27,000-square-foot, two-story building with 25 one- and two-bedroom apartments dedicated to veterans at risk of homelessness. More information about the Boulder Point project and others like it is available at http://harborhomes.org/boulder-point.
The NHEC Foundation is funded by the generosity of more than 40,000 New Hampshire Electric Co-op members who participate in the Round Up Program. Participating members agree to have their monthly electric bill rounded up to the next dollar with the proceeds benefiting the NHEC Foundation.
