Detailed information about a variety of help is listed in state-specific guides linked below.

211.org is a national clearing house developed by the United Way to help people find help.

Following gaming, other fun stuff in NH Posted by on

Residents and workers in New Hampshire or those interested in the state or the construction industry, would do well to follow NHCarpenters on Twitter. Today, he's providing live, blow-by-blow updates on the progress of hearings relating to expanded gaming in the state. NHCarpenters is also a regular source of information on what's going on with carpenters--union and nonunion--in the industry and how contractors are behaving.

Even if you do not use Twitter, you can visit pages of those who do to see what they're up to. Use the link above to see current and past posts.

And of course, be sure to visit the Twitter account of the New England Regional Council of Carpenters (@NERCC).




This week at the Carpenters Center Posted by on

This week at the Carpenters Center, members are participating in a training class to help them contain pathogens, protect patients and perform work within active health care facilities without disrupting operations. "Best Practices in Health-Care Construction in Occupied Facilities" is a program developed by the UBC in conjunction with noted infection experts to develop carpenter skills and awareness that benefit both contractors and the facilities in which they work.

You can learn more about the program's development here. An introductory video about the program can be viewed here.

The first session for carpenters was held about a year ago in Connecticut. Since then, training sessions have been held for apprentices and journey level carpenters in different areas of New England.

Look for the program to expand and gain acceptance among safety-minded facilities who are looking to reduce risk to their patients.

Pictured: Carpenters work on creating safe work environments in active health care facilities, for example, creating a properly contained space to replace a soiled ceiling tile.
