More than 400 volunteers
and 280 businesses completed a
10-plus-day $500,000 community-
funded renovation of the Crisis
Center of Central New Hampshire
in Concord, according to project
coordinator Building on Hope.
Originally established in 1978 as the
Rape and Domestic Violence Crisis
Center, CCCNH provides services
to victims and survivors of domestic
violence, sexual assault, elder
abuse, stalking and child abuse.
According to Building for Hope,
the renovation doubled the shelter’s
capacity to seven bedrooms with 23
beds and equipped the home with a
brand new security monitoring system,
mechanical system with heat
and air conditioning, windows,
exterior siding, interior flooring,
a wheelchair-accessible lift on the
porch and an ADA-compliant kitchen,
bathroom and bedroom.
