WHO WE ARE

Laconia Housing, formerly known as Laconia Housing & Redevelopment Authority and  Laconia Housing Authority, was established in 1950 by a vote of the Laconia City Council. After a period of inactivity, the organization was reactivated in 1962 and has operated since as a joint agreement between the City of Laconia and the Department of Housing and Urban Development. Utilizing federal government programs, Laconia Housing offers subsidized housing through the properties they own and manage partnerships, and by administering subsidized housing vouchers in the Laconia area.

 

The organization provided housing for people displaced by Laconia’s downtown redevelopment in the late 1960s. Community needs have since changed and the organization has changed its work and mission to serve a wider population. Today, Laconia Housing provides housing opportunities for nearly 2,000 area residents, including the elderly, disabled, working families and professionals. The non-profit organization is overseen by a Board of Commissioners who are appointed by the Laconia City Manager to serve five-year terms. 

Today, Laconia Housing provides housing opportunities for over 700 households/families (nearly 2,000 people) including:

 


To meet the growing demand for senior services, Laconia Housing implemented several innovative programs including: 

 

  • Congregate Housing Services Program (CHSP) - direct support services (meals, housekeeping, laundry, transportation, personal care)

  • Home & Community Base Care (HCBC) – direct support services with nursing

  • Laconia Housing Home Health Agency - nursing services and personal care 

  • Senior Center in collaboration with Belknap-Merrimack Community Action Program (CAP)

  • Choices for Independence (CFI) - support services while living independently.

The organization also partners with the Senior Center in Laconia through the  Belknap-Merrimack County Action Program. These services allow elderly residents to maintain a level of independent living and reduce the cost of nursing home services to the state and county. 

 

Laconia Housing has a dedicated staff providing excellent care and service.
