Our

Guiding Principles

Zero Tolerance

We believe that recovery begins with sobriety. Liberty House has a zero-tolerance policy regarding alcohol and/or drug use. We test at admission and randomly thereafter.

We accept no Federal or State funding for Operating Expenses

Because we accept no federal or state funding for operating expenses, we can maintain our zero-tolerance alcohol/drug policy and be more efficient with our resources.

Small House Community

We believe our small house community best supports a positive and supportive culture that best facilitates self-sufficiency and independence.

Community of Brothers and Sisters: Vets helping Vets

A significant component to our residents’ path to self-sufficiency and independence is the culture created by fellow resident Veterans.

Efficient Operations

We have a small staff that works hard to create efficient operations to be the best possible stewards of our donors’ resources.

Our Model

Sobriety and Recovery, Mental and Physical Wellness, Meaningful Work, and Quality Housing

Our

Mission

Liberty House remembers, honors, and supports our Veterans.

Our

Story

In 1943, a German U-boat torpedo hit the USAT Dorchester. More than 600 servicemen were killed. Private Harold Paczosa was one of the servicemen lost. However, his memory lives on through his sister, Annette, and her gift of the family home to the VFW. Annette’s only request was that the house is used for military veterans and that a memorial stone honoring her brother be maintained at the house. Don Duhamel, a retired Air Force sergeant, partnered with the Manchester VFW to create Liberty House at the Paczosa’s family home.

Since then, our veterans have worked together to rebuild confidence, enhance skills, and lead fulfilling substance-free lives. Liberty House has provided support and services to more than 300 formerly homeless veterans thanks to the generosity of our donors, the community, and Annette (Paczosa) Nelson.
