It’s Moving Day!

Today is moving day for The River Center. Boxes, piles of stuff and to do lists are everywhere. We are heading 2.6 miles down the road to 9 Vose Farm Rd., Suite 115, and we are excited!

May 31 we finalized the sale of our buildings to All Saints Church, our neighbors. We are leaving the building management business gladly. All Saints will gain expanded parking and ministry opportunities. We have a win, win situation.

But don’t worry, we aren’t going away. We will bring the community the same services in a new location. We bring with us Southern New Hampshire Services Fuel Assistance office, a sharing of space that has worked so well for over a decade. You will continue to find the advocate from Monadnock Center for Violence Prevention in our office on Mondays and the case manager from Monadnock Area Transitional Shelter with us on Tuesdays. Monadnock Peer Support will maintain their weekly meetings on Friday mornings at 11:00 in our new space.

Of course all the programs of The River Center will continue in and through our new location. The Employment Specialist meets with individuals needing assistance in the job search. Volunteers offer individual money coaching by appointment. The Farm to Table program for parents and children meets every Thursday throughout the summer and fall at various locations. The Jaffrey Parenting group meets every Friday morning at the United Church of Jaffrey. A new line up of parenting groups will be offered in the fall. Our home visitor is busy connecting with mothers and their babies in their homes. We are here to help you connect with services throughout the Eastern Monadnock Region by calling 924-6800 or visiting us at Suite 115, 9 Vose Farm Rd.  The Wood Bank will move to the Peterborough Town Garage, still providing wood to households by referrals from the Fuel Assistance programs.

We are excited, exhausted, and optimistic about our future. We have changed our address but our mission remains the same. We are here to strengthen the families and individuals of our community.

I gotta go pack. Come see us at 9 Vose Farm Rd., Suite 115. I’d love to show you are new home!
