Current Project: 50 Hosley Street, Manchester, NH

About the property

Our property on Hosley Street is a 3-family structure which was damaged by fire and boarded up for 3 years until GMHFH acquired the property in 2010. The City of Manchester helped us to purchase the property using Neighborhood Stabilization Program funds in conjunction with the Community Development Block Grant Program. Volunteers and contractors are working to restore this early 1900's building to a liveable, and energy-efficient, 3-family home.

Current Work
