About

The Chase Home provides at-risk youth and families with services and programs designed to address root causes of issues that threaten the family dynamic. Our programs are led by highly trained staff, many of whom possess deep knowledge of available resources in the region. In many cases, our services are mandated by the State of NH, although we have expanded some of our programs to increase community access in an effort to prevent some of the issues that often lead to poor long-term life outcomes.

Our mission is “dedicated to providing supportive and restorative residential and family services to at-risk youth in a safe and nurturing environment.”

History

Originally founded as an orphanage in 1877, The Chase Home is one of the oldest non-profit organizations in the state of NH. For decades, we have been committed to helping children live healthier and happier lives. No longer an orphanage, we provide services and programs both in the community and on-site at The Chase Home where some kids live. In recent years, we have expanded services to better meet community needs (often in close collaboration with numerous stakeholders).

Leadership Team

The team at The Chase Home is guided by two volunteer boards, served by individuals with deep ties in the seacoast community. The leadership team itself is led by Meme Wheeler, Chase Home’s Executive Director. The Chase Home’s leadership each holds social work degrees and credentials, and years of experience in their field, which provide the knowledge and expertise needed to stabilize families and help them develop tangible life skills to better manage and advance their own lives.
