A statewide organization is seeking people who are or previously were homeless for a leadership program beginning in November.

It’s the third session of the New Hampshire Coalition to End Homelessness’s Granite Leaders Program, which is six months long and free to attend.

It’s designed to build advocacy skills to strengthen efforts to end homelessness, according to a statement issued Monday.

“Our program gives those who want to make positive change in their communities the tools that they need to have the greatest impact,” said Cathy Kuhn, the coalition’s director. “They play a key role in helping to end homelessness in our state.

The program will admit up to 15 candidates. More information can be found at nhceh.org/graniteleaders. Applications are due Oct. 19.
