The phone never stops ringing, because there is always someone in need. This year, the 2-1-1 New Hampshire team answered more than 40,000 calls from residents seeking resources for critical needs like fuel assistance, legal help and emergency housing.
Jane Davis was one of those callers. After a dishonest contractor abandoned her major home renovation project mid-way, she was left with her beloved home torn apart and without the funds to complete the project. In jeopardy of foreclosure, 2-1-1 helped connect her with the Home Help NH foreclosure prevention program.
“I was overwhelmed and felt like I had run out of options. I bought that home as a single mom and raised my son there. I didn’t want to lose it,” said Jane. “When I called 2-1-1, the person on the other end of the line helped me connect with the Home Help NH program where I was eligible for a mortgage modification that saved my home from foreclosure.”
“I have referred people to 2-1-1 many times. It is one of New Hampshire’s greatest resources and it is so simple to remember,” said Jane. “A call to
2-1-1 helped me save my home.”
