To transform the lives of families working to achieve safety, stability and independence by fostering connection and providing holistic, individual and group support offerings, including transitional housing for women and their children, as well as early childhood education, and group-based community programs for all.


Marguerite’s Place has a 30-year legacy of empowering families on their transition from crisis to sustainable independence.

Founded by Sister Sharon Walsh and Sister Elaine Fahey, Marguerite’s Place was named in honor of St. Marguerite d’Youville, the foundress of the Grey Nuns of the Sacred Heart. 

St. Marguerite d’Youville dedicated her life to supporting the most vulnerable members of her community, and our work continues to be shaped by her directive.


Unique to the New Hampshire service landscape, there are no other programs in the state that provide transitional housing, quality licensed childcare, and supportive group programming within one organization. 

We passionately believe that it is this specific combination of whole-family services and individualized supports that provide the opportunity for sustainable success, and leads to healthy, happy lives. 

Our approach aims to end cyclical homelessness and poverty, interrupts the impact of trauma on future generations, and provides a lasting solution to familial instability.
