The Chase Home has received a $10,000 grant from The Rite Aid Foundation’s KidCents program to provide support for at-risk youth and families throughout New Hampshire.
“It’s so important for our organization to receive aid, especially during this ongoing pandemic,” said Chase Home Executive Director Meme Wheeler. “It helps us meet complex community needs with clinical support and services available 24/7.”
Founded in 1877, Chase Home is a residential treatment facility that also provides a variety of in-home services to at-risk youth, ages 11 to 18.
“We work to stabilize families and help them develop tangible life skills so they can better manage and advance their own lives,” she added. “We appreciate The Rite Aid Foundation and their investment in our kids.”
Matthew DeCamara, executive director of The Rite Aid Foundation, said they appreciate organizations like Chase Home. The Foundation supports 480 local nonprofits through its KidCents program, which is funded through Rite Aid customer donations.
“KidCents charities like Chase Home address the toughest challenges in our neighborhoods and provide life-changing and life-saving programs to keep children and families healthy, nourished and safe,” said DeCamara.
COVID-19, he noted, has presented “unprecedented challenges for these organizations.”
“We have marveled at the dedicated community leaders, staff and volunteers who have tirelessly worked and advocated for children’s health,” he added. “We’re thankful for their incredible efforts, as well as for the valued generosity of Rite Aid customers.”
