Welcome to The Upper Room

We are a non-profit Family Resource Center, committed to the development of strong individuals and families in our community. The Upper Room has a team of dedicated professionals who are actively working to improve the family life of the citizens of Derry and surrounding communities in a way that is unique to any place in New Hampshire.

Serving individuals, families and our community through our mission, The Upper Room improves the lives of families and children by:

Strengthening individuals and families by providing them with the education, services and resources needed to live healthy, self-sufficient lives.

Celebrating families for 30 years in 2016!

30 Celebrates 30 for TUR

Join TUR’s $30 Celebrates 30 campaign --- support us in another 30 years of helping to strengthen families with a $30 donation.

Our goal is to have 1,000 donors contribute – be one of them! Become a TUR Champion!

$30 provides one young person the chance to do a Community Service Learning Opportunity

$30 covers the admission to 3 parenting workshops for a struggling parent

$30 is enough to provide 60 meals for local families in need through our Food Pantry



Thank you to our friends at the New Hampshire Charitable Foundation for supporting our work of strengthening families. We are fortunate to have NHCF as a partner!



Our founder Anna Willis passed away in December: this picture shows her at our annual Ice Cream Social this past August, laughing with characteristic warmth.

She made a real difference in the lives of others, and we feel privileged to be able to continue her legacy.
