Friends of New Hampshire
Bishop's Charitable Assistance Fund awards Friends $2,500 grant
The Friends of New Hampshire Drug Courts received a $2,500 grant from the Bishop’s Charitable Assistance Fund. The Friends will use the grant to help participants of New Hampshire’s state and federal drug courts obtain transportation, dental care, housing and other needs critical to achieve long-term recovery.
The Bishop’s Charitable Assistance Fund makes grants to tax-exempt organizations without regard to religious affiliation for projects that help people in New Hampshire meet their basic needs. The fund is operated by volunteer lay men and women who serve as directors and who make recommendations to the Bishop of Manchester for grants to any organization in the state whose mission is consistent with the teachings of the Roman Catholic Church. The fund raises money through solicitations of individuals, businesses and philanthropic organizations. An annual accounting of the funds raised and disbursements is available at www.catholicnh.org/BCAF.
