As a member of the Partnership for Successful Living, Keystone Hall offers a unique, holistic approach to care that result in better outcomes for our clients and the community.
New Hampshire Charitable Foundation – Although New Hampshire is one of the safest states, people released from prison face many obstacles to successful re-entry in our communities. Fully 44 percent end up back in prison, at a high cost to the taxpayer. Limited access to treatment and a dearth of programs that facilitate successful re-entry mean that public safety can be compromised, recidivism rates remain high and growth in prison spending continues unchecked. Over the years the New Hampshire Charitable Foundation has funded projects that help citizens and policymakers understand these challenges. More recently, the Foundation has helped lever significant new resources for more comprehensive approaches.
NH CLU – The American Civil Liberties Union of New Hampshire is a nonprofit, nonpartisan organization of New Hampshire residents dedicated to defending the individual rights guaranteed in the Bill of Rights and the New Hampshire Constitution.
NH Works – New Hampshire’s partnership of state agencies and community-based organizations offering a wide variety of services to job seekers, employers needing a trained and work-ready workforce, and youth looking for an alternative educational/career path experience.
