*FIT VISTA-Harbor Homes Development Associate
Harbor Homes, Inc. is a private, non-profit organization in NH whose mission is to create and provide quality residential, health care, and supportive services—in short, a continuum of supports for individuals and families to escape and avoid homelessness. Harbor Homes is NH’s largest builder and supplier of supportive housing, and also offers the state’s only stand-alone federally qualified health center for the homeless, which provides low-to-no cost primary, behavioral, and dental health care. Complementing housing and healthcare are comprehensive economic and social supports, including employment and substance misuse treatment. The latter suite of programs is having significant success combatting Greater Nashua’s devastating opioid crisis. Headquartered in Nashua, the state’s second largest city, Harbor Homes has 51 programs that serve 5,000 community members annually.
