NSK has embarked on a critical mission to renovate a school building, on 35 Spring Street Nashua, into a new, expanded emergency shelter. This new shelter will provide increased emergency housing capacity and the space to provide additional support and services. NSK can provide basic needs for more homeless individuals and families in Nashua.
For nearly 40 years NSKS has provided support for the Nashua community 's most vulnerable people - homeless and low-income men, women and families with children who have nowhere else to go. Service includes meals, food pantry, emergency shelter, education and employment assistance and other support services
The homeless population in Hillsborough County increased by 16.9% from 2010 to 2018, and it continues to grow specially after the Covid-19 pandemic. There is increased number of people in the Nashua region have no place to live. Some may not even have temporary shelter. On any given night, there are individuals and families sleeping in their car or on the ground. If you have driven through town, maybe you've seen them.
NSKS is creating a new emergency shelter at 35 Spring Street in Nashua. The Spring Street Shelter will double the capacity and enable NSKS to significantly expand on‐site services. The structure holds four floors and approximately 20,000 ft2 of usable space-more than triple the current capacity. Slated for completion in the fall of 2022, the new shelter will include 48 beds for families, 18 beds for single men, 14 beds for single women, and 11 studio apartment units for permanent, supported housing. This new shelter is especially critical for families with children in times of crisis because NSKS is the only emergency shelter for families in Nashua. Currently, when NSKS’s family shelter is full, the City of Nashua houses families in remote hotels, often far from children’s schools
