“ A Home Between Homes…”
The Tyler Blain House, located in Lancaster, New Hampshire, is a 4-bedroom Victorian home. It is ADA compliant and has the ability to house up to 8 individuals at a time. Shelter guests have independent access to a large eat-in kitchen, a community food pantry, laundry facilities and a common area. Food and material goods assistance are provided as needed. On-site staff provides individualized case management services to all shelter guests, including help with transportation. Staff also assists shelter guests in developing plans to meet their goals of being self-sufficient and securing permanent housing. All are welcome at Tyler Blain, except individuals who are a safety threat to themselves or others, and unaccompanied minors.
Our program mission is to “strive to make sure every resident of the North Country has access to programs that will prevent an episode of homelessness and provide the assistance needed to secure shelter should homelessness come to pass.”
Our goal is to alleviate immediate housing emergencies and to assist shelter residents with achieving independence that leads to permanent housing and ends the cycle of homelessness.
When the tragedy of homelessness occurs, people often feel disconnected from their community. At Tyler Blain, we believe that a successful approach to shelter happens in the context of a supportive community–one that focuses on including the person in a meaningful experience. For this reason, when people stay at Tyler Blain House, they are engaged in a total community living arrangement. We believe everyone heals at a different pace, and for this reason, there is not a limit on the length of time an individual may stay. We ask only that residents be pro-active in their plan for independence.
