The homeless shelter had outgrown it's Stratham location, which resulted in a proposed move to Exeter.

Residents of Hunter Place and Exeter Farms neighbors sued last year after Seacoast Family Promise was given the okay to move to 27 Hampton Road, Seacoastonline reported. Attorney Derek Durbin argued that neighbors' safety and property values would be compromised by this move.

The legal battle had been ongoing for two years.
