Monadnock at Home (MaH) is a non-profit, 501(c)(3) membership organization serving the towns east of Mount Monadnock. Our purpose is to give people over 62 both the practical means and the confidence to live their lives to the fullest while staying in their own home.
With Cynthia Bowen as Executive Director (ED), MaH began operation in September 2010, with 49 membership households spanning six towns. We’ve since grown to about 90 memberships and now serve Dublin, Fitzwilliam, Hancock, Harrisville, Jaffrey, Marlborough, New Ipswich, Peterborough, Rindge and Sharon. Our staff also includes a Member Services Coordinator. Together with active volunteers our staff develops educational, social and wellness opportunities that are an important part of MaH, in addition to responding to specific member requests. To support our organization we have collaborative relationships with several area non-profits. Catholic Charities New Hampshire (CCNH) is our Premier Partner, supporting the MaH vision for building community and systems to meet the needs of seniors as they grow older. We also have partnerships with Monadnock Community Hospital, Home Healthcare Hospice & Community Services (HCS) in Peterborough, American Red Cross and Contoocook Valley Transportation Company. Our quarterly newsletters describe the various ways our members enjoy and benefit from our services and events.
