Harbor Homes Celebrates Opening of New Facility in Manchester
On June 14, 2013, Harbor Homes hosted a Ribbon Cutting to celebrate the opening of its newest transitional and permanent supportive housing facility for homeless veterans and their families, BAE Systems Independence Hall, located at 335 Somerville Street in Manchester, NH. About 200 people, including business and civic leaders, dignitaries, and elected officials attended this event.
This new facility is in direct response to New Hampshire’s Four Year Plan to End Veteran Homelessness, formally adopted by Governor Lynch in 2010. The project cost is approximately $5.2 million. Funding for the project is a mix of loans and grants from the VA, HUD, City of Manchester, Merrimack County Savings Bank, Federal Home Loan Bank Boston, NH Housing Finance Authority, TD Bank Charitable Foundation, Citizens Bank Foundation, Harbor Homes, and BAE Systems.
Northpoint Engineering was excited to be a part of the design team and to witness the evolution of this project from the early stages of conceptual design, into final design and permitting, and through construction. We congratulate Harbor Homes on all of their efforts to complete this successful redevelopment of an inner-city lot in Manchester and to bring a positive service and product to the community.
