Our Place

Our Place, Inc., founded in 2019, became a 501c3 nonprofit in April 2020. The goal of Our Place is to create supportive housing for adults with developmental disabilities in the seacoast area. Our Place plans to build and/or renovate homes for 10 individuals to live in their own apartments with shared social spaces and the support they need to live independently and be part of the local community. 

Our Place was created to offer adults with developmental disabilities proper housing and support in a safe, healthy, social, and caring home where they may age in place with their peers. Of the limited options available to these adults, a supportive housing model should be a choice. Forty-five individuals have already contacted Our Place indicating an interest in this type of  housing opportunity.

Our Place will provide each individual with surroundings that are conducive to long term friendships, a sense of well being and self-worth while respecting each resident's individual choices for employment, recreation and socialization. We are thankful to have Visions Creative Housing Solutions, in Enfield, NH, as a model for our project. Visions has been successfully and sustainably providing a supportive housing residence for 10 adults with developmental disabilities since 2014 and is expanding to two other homes. 

Our Place is currently working on developing their first home in the Seacoast NH area. Our Place board of directors and volunteers are determined to have the first home up and running for 10 individuals with developmental disabilities in 2023, so that we can go on to build more.

Accomplishments

  • Our Place raised $45,000 with New Hampshire Gives just two months after becoming a 501c3.
  • From January 2020 to August 2020 we sent a team to the Supportive Housing Institute sponsored by New Hampshire Housing Finance Authority and the Corporation for Supportive Housing. At the institute our team learned how to build and maintain a quality supportive housing project. 

We are currently looking for people with expertise in real estate, development and accounting.
