Seeking new volunteers to join the ELRHC Board

The Eastern Lakes Region Housing Coalition is recruiting volunteers to expand its Board of Directors.

The Eastern Lakes Region Housing Coalition, one of four regional Housing Coalitions in the State of New Hampshire, was established in 2005 as a nonprofit 501-c-3 organization. The coalition’s goal is to support and facilitate creation of affordable quality workforce housing in our region to allow those who work here to live here. A diversity of housing means a mix of housing types including market-rate, affordable, and mixed income housing. It includes both ownership and rental opportunities in single and multi-family options.

Past accomplishments include the construction of 48 workforce housing units at Harriman Hill in Wolfeboro. The coalition has also hosted numerous educational events throughout our region, including forums and workshops on a variety of housing topics and legislation. Most recently, the coalition hosted a forum on new regulations pertaining to Accessory Dwelling Units (in-law apartments).

The Board of Directors generally meets once a month on the second Thursday from 3:30 p.m. to 5 p.m. at the WEDCO office at 7 Center Street in Wolfeboro. The Coalition’s committees may meet more often at other times or as-needed.

While we encourage volunteers with wide-ranging skills and talents to apply, an individual willing to take over our popular spring geranium sale and fall chrysanthemum sale, and to expand on these – would be especially welcomed.

For more information or to be considered for board membership, please contact Program Director Larissa Mulkern at lmulkern@elrhc.org.
