Programs: Current ProgramsNew Generation ProgramThe New Generation Certificate Program provides shelter, love, respect and care to pregnant homeless women and mothers of young children regardless of race, religion, marital status, disability, or economic status. The shelter helps women make positive changes through case management, parenting education, life skills training, job training, and transportation to area services for healthcare, etc. New Generation residents are required to attend group and individual Parenting Education classes with Joan Ouellette. While seeking and securing permanent housing, the resident?s goals may involve parenting or adoption education, getting a job, attending Alcoholics Anonymous, obtaining a General Education Diploma, or applying for college. Group goals include prenatal care, parenting education, nutrition and health education, counseling, and learning daily life skills. The program includes Resident Budgeting Classes and the Resident Computer Education Program, taught onsite by daystaff and volunteers. Aftercare-The Aftercare Coordinator visits former residents who have transitioned into permanent housing. This program connects former residents with resources in their local communities and provides companionship to women who may have never lived independently before. Friendship, reunions and continuing services are available through Aftercare.Transitional Apartment-A Transitional Apartment provides temporary housing (up to 18 months) to a woman and her child(ren) who may be caught in the housing crisis or are experiencing a job loss or divorce. The two-bedroom apartment has just received new paint, carpeting, and a thorough cleaning and has been home to 11 women and 14 children since it was built in 1999. The apartment is on the second floor of the shelter.Second Generation Thrift Shoppe/Generation Gap Furniture BarnSecond Generation Thrift Shoppes and Generation Gap Furniture Barn are services of New Generation that offer affordable clothing, household items, and furniture to the public. The shoppe and barn created a revenue stream for New Generation Shelter, and profits have steadily increased since 1993. Both are run by staff and volunteers and are made possible by material donations from people throughout the seacoast. In the last year, the thrift shoppe and barn have added a kiosk that educates customers about New Generation while they are shopping, and a storage shed for incoming donations. The shed has electricity and keeps the shoppe and barn well organized. For more information, contact Janet Hamilton, Manager, at 603-430-9482. Next Generation Infant & Childcare CenterNext Generation is a service of New Generation, Inc. offering full-time quality, affordable daycare for families in the seacoast since 1999. Next Generation is committed to accepting Title XX assistance for low-income families, including former shelter residents, who are working towards financial self-sufficiency. The daycare was licensed as a state preschool program in 2004. Through recent grants, the daycare is purchasing new educational and playground equipment for cognitive and motor skills development. NAEYC accreditation is the next goal in process. For more information on enrollment or volunteer opportunities, contact Ivelisse Roy, Daycare Director, at 603-422-9582.
