Easterseals NH Breaks Ground on Champlin Place in Rochester

Easterseals NH recently held a groundbreaking ceremony to celebrate this important milestone in the development of Champlin Place, a 65-unit affordable housing community in Rochester for individuals 62 years of age or older.

The Champlin Place community will provide critical supportive housing for older adults facing housing insecurity. Residents will benefit from a rich array of long-term, sustainable services including nursing, counseling, service coordination, transportation, etc.

CDFA‘s Executive Director, Katy Easterly Martey, had the opportunity to share a few words with those attending:

“We’re proud to have made an investment in this significant housing project through the Community Development Block Grant program – a program that leverages federal resources from the Department of Housing and Urban Development to finance projects that directly impact people in our communities. The impact of the Community Development Block Grant resources in New Hampshire is significant – without these funds, so many critical projects like this may not be possible.

Permanent supportive housing is a critical and much needed element of New Hampshire’s housing landscape. CDFA recognizes that creating these types of projects with coordinated, long-term and sustainable services is complex. We are grateful for the hard work and dedication of those who will make Champlin Place a successful example of what’s possible to lift up those individuals within our communities who need it most.”
