Jeanne Shaheen has shown tireless dedication to our veterans across the board and this is no different when it comes to Harbor Homes services and programs. She has helped secure several grants to Harbor Homes: A $5 million federal grant from the Health Resource Service Administration to renovate and expand the facility at 45 High Street; a $1 million grant for the Veterans FIRST program to provide employment, housing and VA benefits assistance to approximately 300 New Hampshire vets and their families; and a $1 million grant to fund their programs and services that keep veterans off the street. ...

Sen. Shaheen’s work for Harbor Homes is just one of the countless examples of her dedication to Granite State veterans. She understands the unwavering commitment we owe to our veterans. When visiting veterans programs and facilities in Nashua and across the state, you cannot avoid somewhere that has been touched by the legacy of Jeanne Shaheen and her commitment to Granite State veterans. We need to keep her fighting for us in Washington, which is why I urge everyone who cares for veterans and veterans services in our state to vote for her this November.
