During the 2021 fiscal year, NHCORR made several changes to its website. In February 2021, NHCORR launched its "Accepting New Residents" platform, a tool for house operators to keep their home's availability updated for the benefit of referrals. NHCORR also launched a new resources page for trainings and best practice guidance.
In addition to housing assistance, NHCORR supported the recovery house community by providing guidance on best practices, keeping owners informed of federal relief possibilities and bringing operators together to discuss topics ranging from virtual meetings to recurrence and eviction. NHCORR has been in communication with most operators to determine the challenges faced by homes, research all concerns and provide support and assistance with funding opportunities.
In September 2020, NHCORR hosted a fun, competitive, scavenger hunt in Concord via Lets Roam for residents from several recovery homes in our network. Click here to view all of the photos from the event!
