Amber's Place emergency shelter closes, 6 laid off at Hope for NH Recovery

MANCHESTER — An emergency shelter for people in the early stages of drug withdrawal has laid off six recovery coaches.

Hope for New Hampshire Recovery laid off six employees, who each worked about 30 hours per week, according to the Union Leader.

The employees were part of a program called Amber's Place which was ended because of lack of funding. Amber's Place offered short-term living situations to those looking for treatment options.

Helping Hands, another recovery-oriented shelter, has taken over the offerings of Amber's Place.
