Awake Overnight Counselor

Webster House

Since 1884 the Webster House has been providing a safe haven for children unable to live at home. The home was originally called “The Manchester Children’s Home” and in 1976 the name was changed to “The Webster House”. Local churches along with the Amoskeag Mills helped launch this home that continues to serve children today and well into the future. The Webster House is and always has been a private, non-profit home that has enjoyed a unique relationship with the surrounding community. The public has always partnered with the home helping to support us in so many ways. We are truly blessed to have such a committed public behind us as well as a strong, supportive staff and Board of Directors. We are committed to the children that come to live at Webster House. We support them as they address their issues, all while never forgetting that they are children first and foremost who need to maintain a balance between the hard work ahead of them and the joys of childhood.

The Webster House exists to meet a condition that is prevalent in New Hampshire: youth who are unable to live at home for some period of time.  The Staff's intent is to address four areas of the youth's life.

  • Physical:  By providing a safe home.
  • Social:  By applying the norms of society.
  • Personal:  Through counseling, activities, and a wide range of interpersonal relationships.
  • Family:  By rebuilding the bonds and reuniting the family. ​

We are committed to a program that offers a structure to youth in order to stabilize their lives, resolve issues and encourage personal growth. We are pragmatic in our approaches. Experience has taught us that love and kindness need to be provided in close conjunction with clear and realistic expectations. Our goal is to prepare our residents for adult life, recognizing fully that this is ultimately a partnership between the family, the child, and the program. We provide a home. We provide the opportunities for counseling, education, and activities. We provide the atmosphere in which adult-child relationships can be rebuilt and created. Within this structure, the direction, kindness, and commitment of caring adults can help improve the lives of the children who reside at the Webster House and their families.
