Here for women experiencing homelessness.
Angie’s Shelter for Women is a homelike residence that goes beyond the minimums of an emergency shelter and provides a strong base to fulfill our main mission:
“Angie’s provides a safe environment and supports personal development to achieve self sufficiency for homeless women committed to change.”
Clients at Angie’s, allied with the case management and support staff, are expected to make the necessary individual effort to return to permanent housing and independent living. Our staff will assist every woman in whatever attempt they need toward searching for permanent full-time employment, searching for housing, saving money, using time productively, and taking advantage of supportive services or benefits identified by case managers.
Up to 16 women can stay at Angie’s and individuals are welcome to stay for as long as they are without housing and actively pursuing their goal plans. Residents share the living room and kitchen where they prepare their own meals.
Helping Women Find Success Beyond Angie’s
Classes and presentations are ongoing at Angie’s on topics such as health issues, nutrition, meditation and stress relief, maintaining sobriety, financial basics, employment and self-esteem, and continued success after shelter living. Contact us to find out more.
A New Rita…a New Home
(Featured in this image is Rita before and after.)
Rita found herself homeless for the first time at age 61. High rent, mounting bills and on a fixed income, she was forced to move out of her living situation. She was frightened, but she found Angie’s Shelter and she felt safe again. She listened to staff and was given guidance. She was at Angie’s for seven months and now has her own apartment. She was the recipient of a complete makeover, which was revealed, at the Greater Manchester/Nashua Board of Realtors Spring Fling event held in April.
