Nashua Childrens Home

  • Nashua Children's Home has a century-long tradition and a history of responsiveness to community needs.
  • In 1899, Josiah Fletcher donated property on the corner of Burrett and Brook Streets in Nashua to the First Baptist Church "for the purpose of maintaining a home for orphans and destitute children of Nashua and vicinity." The agency commenced operation in 1903 as the "Nashua Protestant Orphanage Association," administered by a Board of Directors representing all of the Protestant Churches of Nashua.
  • The Educational Program provides services for students with educational disabilities between the ages of 7 and 15.
  • Three self-contained classrooms of 8-10 students, each supervised by a certified special education teacher and an aide, offer a favorable teacher to pupil ratio and close interaction.
