Lack of Housing
The county vacancy rate for apartments is 0.9%, and rent has increased by 36% since 2017. Affordable housing in Strafford County is near non-existent, leading to a huge increase in homelessness in our community.
Families at Risk
2,135 Strafford County children are living in poverty. Children living in poverty are at greater risk of poor nutrition, chronic disease, and mental health problems.
Increased Cost of Living
The post-pandemic fallout of rising inflation rates and supply chain issues have led to a significant increase in energy and food costs. The cost of heating fuel has almost doubled in one year.
“As a Family Support Specialist, I get to work with expecting mothers and babies every day. Some of my favorite parts of this job are seeing a child reach a developmental milestone for the first time, watching moms become more confident and content in the loving relationship they build with their children, and having the opportunity to be an advocate for those who want to be heard.”
