Womenaid of Greater Portsmouth's mission is to bring together local women in an atmosphere of generosity and community in order to provide anonymous, short-term financial assistance, which may not be available elsewhere, to eligible individuals and families when a small amount of money will make a significant difference. One check ~ one life.
We are an all volunteer organization working with existing social service professionals, teachers, clergy and other community resources to provide short term assistance in amounts up to $500 to individuals living in Portsmouth, Greenland, Rye, New Castle or Newington, New Hampshire.
We are not a long-term solution. We fulfill short-term needs that may make a difference in the quality of someone’s life, in the interest of stronger community. We want to help take care of our neighbors, friends, and their children.
