New Horizons Executive Director Charlie Sherman Announces Retirement

MANCHESTER, NH – March 16, 2017

New Horizons for New Hampshire and Angie’s Shelter for Women has announced the retirement of Executive Director Charlie Sherman, effective June 30th.  A search committee is currently seeking a replacement for the popular local television personality turned non-profit-director who has served for the past six years.

“It is with very mixed emotions that I have reached this difficult decision,” said Sherman.  “Serving Manchester’s less fortunate has been the most worthwhile endeavor of my many and varied careers.”

Under Sherman’s leadership, New Horizons has grown to provide shelter for 70 or more individuals each night.  Over 190 people are daily served a hot meal, and more than 900 people per month look to New Horizons to help them supplement their groceries.  Angie’s program helps women take steps to once again become independent and live more fulfilling lives.

“I am extremely proud of the talented and dedicated staff who work tirelessly to help those less fortunate,” Sherman added.  “Remember, New Horizons is a donor based organization, with the majority of the budget coming from caring and compassionate organizations and individuals who continue to support us in this important mission.  I would like to thank each and every one of the volunteers, donors, and staff who have given me their support over the past six years.”

Sherman and his staff have been responsible for many improvements.  The indoor waiting area provides clients a more dignified way to wait for services compared to waiting outside in a line on the sidewalk in all types of bad weather. The new full size greenhouse adjacent to the facility provides thousands of pounds of fresh produce for the soup kitchen each year.  Facility updates include a new loading dock with hydraulic lift; food pantry reconfiguration and indoor waiting area; remodeled soup kitchen with all new flooring; a new kitchen at Angie’s Shelter for Women and all new bathrooms at both New Horizons and Angie’s.

“I am humbled by the magnitude of the New Horizon’s mission,” Sherman said, “and am grateful for the opportunity to have led this important organization for over six years.”

Charlie is looking forward to spending more time at his home in Florida, golfing and traveling.
