Liberty House provides substance-free housing and connections to various community services that help New Hampshire veterans transition to independence.
Liberty House serves two groups of veterans:
- Veterans in recovery: Our sober transitional living program serves male veterans in recovery who are either homeless or face insecure housing; many of whom experience PTSD, mental health challenges, unemployment and other significant barriers, and do not have access to traditional veteran benefits. Through our 4-step program, we walk alongside each resident and support their self-directed plan for independence. We connect them to community resources to both help them achieve immediate goals and to ensure sustainable success. Since 2004, we have helped over 370 resident veterans through our transitional living program.
- Community veterans: We also regularly work with struggling or homeless veterans from the community, male and female, many of whom are on ﬁxed incomes, providing them with assistance such as food, clothing, transportation (gas cards, bus passes), camping gear and community referrals.
While our transitional living program only serves male veterans, support for our community veterans is open to both male and female veterans.
With our sober transitional living program, our residents stay with us for between 90-days to 1-year. During their time with us, they follow our 4-step model, which is:
- Health and Wellness Connections and Essential Documents
- Meaningful Employment
- Transition to Independence
Center for Veterans
Our Center for Veterans serves as a central location for much-needed veteran resources across New Hampshire, whether it’s through hosting recovery meetings, community gatherings, job skills seminars, educational workshops, art therapy, or simply becoming a place where veterans can come together and support each other.
Transforming Lives: One Veteran at a Time
John came to us about two years ago as a combat Veteran with Post-Traumatic Stress who continuously self-medicated with alcohol. This created family turmoil, work instability and other challenges. He went through our 4-Step Model and then transitioned to our Step-up Program. Through this, he completed treatment, reconnected with his family, established a meaningful job and began saving money and improving his credit score. John now faces a more hopeful and stable future – he recently purchased a vehicle, saved over $10,000 and qualified for a condominium. One of his proudest moments was moving into his new home, something he didn’t think was possible two years ago.
