CONCORD, NH – New Hampshire Group (NHG), owner of four New Hampshire charitable gaming facilities, has announced charitable gaming donations totaling over $128,000 to two New Hampshire non-profits focused on ending homelessness and providing affordable housing options to low-income families and individuals.

The funds will help the non-profit with research, education, and advocacy on issues related to homelessness and support agencies with best practices to provide proactive and quality programs.

“We are incredibly grateful to New Hampshire Group for their generous contributions to our organizations,” said Maria Devlin, President and Chief Executive Officer of Families in Transition the parent organization of both nonprofits. “This support will help us continue to provide safe, affordable housing options to those in need and provide critical resources and support to those experiencing homelessness in New Hampshire.”
