Northern NH welfare services feeling strain

Posted: Updated:

Welfare offices across northern New Hampshire say their budgets are unable to keep up with increased demand for their services.

Littleton welfare officials tell the Union Leader they're seeing a new group needing help -- people whose work hours have been cut and are unable to make those smaller paychecks meet their basic needs.

And in Conway, they spent $4,000 more than the $39,000 budgeted last year.

The town says even with a budget increase, this year will be tight too.
