Community Action Partnership of Strafford County is the Strafford County regional access point for the NH Coordinated Entry program. We act as a resource for individuals and families throughout the state who are fleeing or are attempting to flee domestic violence and need housing. Whether currently in crisis or in preparation for a safer future, survivors can work with our staff to prevent homelessness, find shelter and get access to the many crisis centers located throughout New Hampshire.

If you or someone you know is experiencing domestic violence and needs housing, we can help. Our aim is to help survivors feel safe, to prevent and minimize the trauma and dislocation caused by homelessness, and to support self-sufficiency.

Our services include:

  • Coordinating supportive services tailored to each individual, youth, and/ or family,
    with a focus on safety and housing
  • Assistance in accessing and receiving housing case management in collaboration with all NH Victim Service Providers
  • Collaborative care with the survivor’s local domestic and sexual violence crisis agencies
  • Assistance in connecting individuals and/or families with mainstream resources and local
    community partners
  • Assistance in accessing diversion and prevention services, rapid re-housing and permanent housing through the NH Coordinated Entry program.

Identifying Domestic Violence

Forms of Domestic Violence May Include:

  • Physical violence

  • Sexual violence

  • Stalking

  • Verbal, emotional, mental/psychological, and/or economic abuse

Domestic Violence is a pattern of coercive behavior used by one person to gain and maintain power and control over another in the context of an intimate or familial relationship.

Domestic violence can happen to anyone- adult women and men, teenagers, people who are mentally and physically disabled, and the elderly – regardless of race, sexual orientation, gender identity, ability, or economic status.
