GNIHN operates a program at the Anne - Marie House in Hudson , NH. We are a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization, and an affiliate of Family Promise . We provide emergency transitional shelter, meals, and supportive services to homeless families in the Greater Nashua, N.H. community. The Anne- Marie House accommodates up to 24 persons, where families experiencing homelessness are offered food, shelter and supportive services, for up to two years. Learn more about our program and mission . Our guests are alchohol and drug dependant-free, and go through a criminal-background check.Learn more about guest eligibility and guest stays .
There are three staff persons overseeing this program, and more than 400 active volunteers who offer their time and talents to make the Anne -Marie House a “home …for now.” Over 75% of our families graduate from this program and achieve housing independence.
We are primarily funded by individual donations, from grants including from the Greater Nashua United Way, and various fundraisers throughout the year.

The Make Someone Happy Campaign seeks donations from individuals. All money raised from this campaign goes to the operating expenses of the Anne-Marie House. Each year a group of individuals are invited to contribute to a match pool of money, and the challenge is offered to our volunteers and others to match that amount. In the previous two campaigns contributions exceeded the goal.
The budget for the Greater Nashua Interfaith Hospitality Network is about $200,000. The Board of Trustees believes it can raise 20% of that budget through individual donors. To enable you to know our program better we offer a “Come and See” program where our Network Director will introduce you to the life changing experiences of our guests. Our vision is to eliminate homelessness, one family at a time.
Donations can be sent to the attention of the Treasurer: GNIHN, 180 Lowell Road , Hudson , NH 03051 . Receipts will be returned to you with our word of thanks. For more information, or to donate online, click here.
Come and See
The Board of Trustees at GNIHN adopted “Come and See” as program to introduce the work of GNIHN to our support faith communities. This represents a new direction, for we realize that telling the story of the work at Anne-Marie House is essential to developing support for our program. We believe in an interfaith outreach to families experiencing homelessness, and our more that 4 years of experience has produced a caring environment for families experiencing homelessness. The contact for the program is Laurie Skibba, Network Director, and she can be reached at 883-7338.
