Accessing Services:

Belknap House operates as a family shelter year round. To qualify for services, you must be a family that became homeless in Belknap County.  We define family as at least one adult caring for at least one child under the age of 18.  Individuals will only be accepted if they are pregnant.

To access services at Belknap House, families must apply through town welfare.  A list of town welfare numbers can be found here.
