A Home for People in Transition

Lights of Love 2021:

The Monadnock Area Transitional Shelter (MATS) is pleased to announce the Lights of Love program.

Lights of Love is a great way to honor or remember a loved one.

We invite you to participate by donating $5 for a light to be placed on the tree outside the Healing Arts Gallery; adjacent to the ER at Monadnock Community Hospital. Your gift will shine a light for your loved one and also support the work of MATS, which for more than 30 years has provided shelter for local families in transition.
