Manchester Girls Inc. Facility

“You hear all the time about dreams coming true, but you never really believe it could happen to you. We have imagined many times what it would be like to have the resources to improve our facility on Varney Street and make it worthy of the 100 girls who burst through our doors each day. Thanks to Building on Hope, it will soon look like the inviting, warm, and friendly place that it is!”

- Cathy Duffy Cullity, CEO of Girls Inc. of New Hampshire

Our project for 2010: The White House Intensive Residential Facility of Easter Seals NH.

House Interior 2House InteriorKitchenEntranceHouse Exterior



Location: 9 Mammoth Road, The Corner of Cilley and Mammoth Rd. in Manchester, NH

House Exterior

This two-story building is home to five boys who for any number of reasons cannot live with their families. Many residents here have behavioral problems, learning disabilities and other setbacks. Most have experienced severely traumatic life experiences along the way, but they come to the White House because they are working through those problems and have plans for a better future. Easter Seals NH operates more than 60 different programs to assist New Hampshire families in crisis or people in need and often those problems seem beyond repair. So this place is unique because it represents the possibility of success. The White House represents hope.

“The White House helped me figure things out and get focused. Now I know I'm ready.” Codey McIntire, a graduate of the Easter Seals Intensive Residential Treatment Program — Codey now has plans for college and a career in computer technology.
Stairs

The White House was built in the 1930s and is in need of numerous physical repairs. The kitchen where the boys cook, eat and clean is cramped. Insulation is old and inadequate, the boiler is inefficient and a closed-in front porch is not usable in winter months. The living and sleeping quarters are in need of brightening and decorative enhancements.

Building on Hope will set forth to make the improvements needed, expand living space, improve the house's energy efficiency, improve the grounds with functional appealing landscaping and transform a small back yard into a basketball court to provide healthy recreation for the residents. Meanwhile, Interior designers will brighten the home environment making it more conducive to the hopeful positive outlook that can assist the residents in overcoming the problems life has put in their paths.

Building teams will be signed up by December. Resources collected by February 2010. Plans and blueprints drawn up by March and building will begin on May 7 with a celebration upon completion on May 16.

Dining Room

The new White House will be on display for the Palace Theatre Kitchen tour – May, 2010.
