Tri-City Homelessness Task Force

The mayors of Dover, Somersworth and Rochester formed the Tri-City Joint Task Force on Homelessness in 2018 as part of a regional initiative to address homelessness.

The Task Force has drafted a master plan that outlines how all three cities can better address the needs of the homeless, including a regional homeless shelter.

The draft copy of the master plan can be viewed here:
