The Chase Home
Founded in 1877 as an orphanage for young children in Portsmouth, NH, The Chase Home is a powerful example of a grassroots response to an identified need within the community. The Chase Home has evolved over the years to meet the ever changing needs of New Hampshire’s at-risk youth and their families. Today, the Chase Home offers two types of services–residential and home based.
The Residential Program offers youth a place to live, while helping them develop the skills they need to experience stability across multiple areas of their lives, including social, academic, emotional and family environments. Chase's Home-Based Services Program provides 1) support to a youth transitioning from the Residential Program and back with their families reintegrate with their families, or 2) support to youth and families within the home to prevent placement in our Residential Program.
