Society of St. Vincent DePaul Program Development VISTA
According to NH Employment and Security, in 2016 7.4% of Exeter, NH residents are living below the poverty line. Exeter has one of the highest mobile home populations in NH, at 21% of all housing units (in 1990), it ranks as having the second highest proportion of mobile homes the surrounding communities behind Epping, and nearly three times higher than the County average of 6.7%. Manufactured homes reached a high point of about 1100 units in 1990 (21% of the housing stock), and have declined slightly since then. The Town has very limited land areas zoned for manufactured housing. Very little further growth in the mobile home type of manufactured housing is anticipated due to high land cost. This is according to 2010 Exeter Housing Master Plan. Our goal is to help clients break the cycle of poverty and achieve self-sufficiency in the long term. Our services include a food pantry, financial assistance, homeless assistance, healthcare and dental care.
