Located in the heart of downtown, Laconia Housing Authority (LHA) is an organization that provides subsidized housing opportunities utilizing federal government programs at properties owned/managed by LHA (Sunrise Towers, Blueberry Place, Orchard Hill II and Northfield Village) and through partnerships (Tavern Inn/Stafford House and Normandin Square) and by the administration of Housing Choice Vouchers (formerly Section 8).

At select properties, LHA provides direct support services (meals, housekeeping, laundry, transportation, personal care) enabling tenants to remain in their homes even if a little assistance is needed.

LHA also serves our community through various outreaches, such as the United Way, ringing the bell for the Salvation Army, and the Turkey Plunge (which benefits the Salvation Army/Carey House; homeless shelter).

Introduction to LHA


Supportive Services


"I am grateful for the wonderful care my Mom received at Sunrise Towers. The staff is so caring that I actually volunteer my time one day a week to assist in any way I can. Without the assistance my Mom received at SRT, she would be forced into a nursing home. Instead, she is able to live somewhat independently and is very content and secure. Thanks to the Sunrise Towers Staff!"
