Family Promise of Greater Concord NH (FPGC) has a new community partner -

The Granite YMCA!


The Concord, NH Granite YMCA, established in 1852 focuses on youth development, healthy living, social responsibility, family strengthening and is one of the states longest standing and most enduring non-profits. In 2020, they provided financial assistance and free services valued at over $1 million to 5,144 individuals.

  • Their six NH branches engage 30,000 men, women and children – regardless of age, income or background – to improve individuals health and well-being while providing opportunities to give back and support neighbors.


Our collaborative partnership with The Granite Y is vital to the many families we serve at FPGC as parents are now able to shower and utilize some of the Concord's YMCA’s facility when our Day Center is not staffed or accessible.

 

In the future The Granite YMCA is looking to expand our partnership in areas like summer camp and childcare.

June 2022 – Family Promise Executive Director, Liane MaLossi Kerbyson meets up with the Bike and Build Team #education #service #advocacy

A team of 23 young adults from Bike and Build are currently peddling their way across the East Coast on a service-oriented cycling trip, bringing awareness to organizations that promote affordable housing and shelter for the unhoused, like Family Promise of Greater Concord.


Along their journey the team has planned stops to help other organizations such as Habitat for Humanity with hands-on labor, making their purpose a true reality.

 

This week I was invited to speak with the team at one of our host sites, Temple Beth-Jacob after they had biked 60 miles that day. They were friendly, well-educated on the issues of affordable housing and eager to learn more about our organization’s mission to eradicate family homelessness through a community based response.

 

We wish them a safe journey as they continue biking for the cause and fostering a sustained connection to community!
