Summer Street Program
Our newest in-town location
The Summer Street program is our newest and most
innovative program to date. It is located in Peterborough
New Hampshire, and is within walking distance to the town center.
This program opened in the Fall of 2006, and proves 24-hour support
or supervision in non-institutional, community-based environment.
There are three different living arrangements
within the Summer Street program:
The main house has 3 barrier free
bedrooms. Residents in this program should be able
to transfer independently and exit the building with minimal
verbal cueing. The level of support here is commensurate with
the services provided in the Blue
The second floor features a spacious,
3 bedroom suite, designed to offer a higher level of
independence, while maintaining the safety net of 24 hour
The rear portion of Summer Street
features 4 apartments, two of which are barrier free.
These apartments offer the maximum level of independence while
again, providing that safety net of 24 hour on-site support.
Each apartment has all of the life safety attributes as the
other programs; sprinklers, fire alarm panel, emergency lighting
and second means of egress.

The Summer Street program licensed by
the State of New Hampshire as a Residential Treatment and Rehabilitation
facility. It is a community-based program, and residents
are assisted by staff with banking, shopping, leisure activities,
and off-site therapeutic recreation such as pool therapy and a
therapeutic horseback riding program. We tend to do few large
group activities, and prefer to focus
on individualized access to the community.
All of our programs are designed to offer the resident maximum
independence in the least restrictive environment. We also strive
to promote choice and self-determination concepts, balanced with
the mission of maintaining a rehabilitative environment.
