In-Kind Donations

Donations In Need
YWCA NH frequently accepts new, unused donations for the individuals and families we serve at Emily’s Place , The Brook Street Womens Shelter, and in the community through our crisis services program, REACH.

Brook Street Womens Shelter

Brook Street Women’s Shelter is a newly opening shelter for women who are experiencing chronic homelessness operated by YWCA NH. There has been a shortage of bed spaces available to women in our community, and we hope this program will help start to fill that gap. Brook Street Women’s Shelter will house up to 16 women at a time, providing a safe space to live while they engage in case management and trauma-informed programming targeted at addressing the issues that are causing the chronic homelessness and tools to help break the cycle.
