Compass House Complete
On February 5th, 70+ people helped us celebrate the completion of our first supportive housing project, Compass House.
Compass House is a group home for women in recovery that is operated by Horizons Counseling Center in partnership with Navigating Recovery of the Lakes Region.
This project was financed by New Hampshire Housing. Stewart Associates Architects was the project architect and Martini Northern was the general contractor. In addition to state funds, Compass House received rebates from NH Saves Home Energy Assistance through Liberty Gas. The New Hampshire Women’s Foundation, Annette P. Schmitt Trust, New Hampshire Charitable Foundation, and Eversource provided grants for furnishings, which were provided at a discount by DCI Furniture of Lisbon, NH.
We'd like to thank all the partners and supporters that made Compass House possible and all who attended its opening.
