Administrative Assistant

Hundred Nights, Inc.

Hundred Nights, Inc. serves the Monadnock region by helping those at risk of becoming homeless and those who already find themselves without a stable domicile. This involves multiple services: overnight and day sheltering; case management to enable individuals to connect with other resources in the community; providing resources directly so that people can find housing and jobs; and enabling homeless individuals to come together in a place where they feel safe, welcome and part of a supportive community. Building on increasing community support and new funding streams, Hundred Nights seeks to acquire a new facility where its programs can be better carried out, to strengthen its human resources by adding some positions, increasing some positions from part- to full-time, and further building community engagement through philanthropy and volunteering.

  • Mission, vision:
    • The mission of Hundred Nights, Inc. is to provide shelter and crisis-related services to the displaced or homeless. Our goal is to collaborate with and enable the community to see, hear and support those among us who are equally deserving of dignity but who currently lack the means to live independently.
    • Our vision is:
      • The community will have more compassion and understanding of those experiencing homelessness or who are at risk of becoming homeless
      • Everyone in the community will have safe shelter
      • There will be a specific, planned community where those who cannot live in traditional housing, or who prefer not to, have a safe place to reside
      • The community welcomes and includes all people, including those who are homeless
      • The community sees those who are homeless as a potential resource, rather than a drain on society
      • There will be fewer homeless people than there are now
