decades of SERVICE
The Nashua Center was founded in 1973 for a group of children whose severity of disabilities prevented them from participating in any existing public or private educational programs. The Center originally operated as a child care center and incorporated as the Nashua Center for the Multiply Handicapped, Inc. in 1976. In 1983, the Center opened its first group home.
By 1984, the Center had become a state certified school that served students with multiple disabilities, ages 3-21. In 1986, the school relocated to 18 Simon Street and became known as the Simon Street Regional School. Residential Services continued to expand with the opening of several new group homes.
With the belief that all children belonged in their own neighborhood public schools, the Center actively pursued that transition for all of its students. As this transition was occurring, the Center began providing day services for adults through the JOBS ETC. program. In August 1992, the Simon Street Regional School was officially closed as JOBS ETC. and our Residential Services continued to grow.
In March 1994, The Children’s Pyramid was established to provide early intervention services for children birth to three and their families in their homes. We currently provide those services to over 250 families a year throughout Southern New Hampshire.
CLASSIC In-Home Care was established in 2005 to provide non-medical in-home care to elder and chronically ill adults. Companion caregivers provide the support needed for individuals to maintain their independence in their own homes.
