Brentwood, NH — ReVision Energy is excited to announce a collaboration with the NH Partnership for Successful Living to provide Harbor Homes with a $100K grant toward the construction of new residences for veterans at Boulder Point in Plymouth, NH. Harbor Homes is a New Hampshire nonprofit leading the effort to end homelessness in the state. The groundbreaking ceremony for this project took place on September 14th.
The Partnership for Successful Living is an innovative network consisting of six collaborative nonprofit agencies, including Harbor Homes, that strive to help New Hampshire individuals and families solve many of life’s challenging issues and gain sustainable independence.
Harbor Homes places housing at the center of an integral approach to ending homelessness—the idea that housing is vital to healthcare shapes their vision. To date they have created three transitional housing programs for veterans in New Hampshire that also provide holistic care for residents. Their newest housing project in Plymouth will consist of 30 living units, and will be Harbor Homes’s first permanent housing project.
Mandy Reagan, of Harbor Homes’s Supportive Services for Veteran Families, noted, “We have been looking for a larger project that could provide permanent, supportive, and affordable housing for veterans here in the state.” The grant will go a long way in helping Harbor Homes create these permanent homes.
Awarded by the NH Community Development Finance Authority, the grant functions as a tax credit for ReVision Energy. ReVision co-founder Dan Clapp explained, “It is a great way for us to put our values to work, ensuring we are directly supporting projects that benefit the local community.” As a B Corp, ReVision steadily pushes for positive social and environmental change in the world. When business is not just about profits, communities at every level can prosper, and that is why ReVision upholds the triple bottom line: People, Planet & Profit.
Mandy Reagan added, “I think it really speaks to the larger goal here of collaborative community efforts, coming together for a central goal, in this case ending veteran homelessness. So, the fact that community partners like ReVision are willing to come to the table and step up to help these heroes find a home here in New Hampshire is really an amazing thing to see. We appreciate it, we couldn’t do this without our community partners, and to see these veterans finding permanent housing, finding a home to come home to is really why we’re here.”
