For Women in Transition

Serving Meredith, NH & Surrounding Communities

Our Story

Sadie’s Place is located in Meredith, NH,
surrounded by the beautiful lakes and mountains. Thanks to a pair of philanthropically-minded sisters, Skrungloo Farm, Inc. was established in 1986 with the mission of enriching and strengthening their surrounding communities. The sisters began the Foundation by providing grants and scholarships to community organizations and students. Their eventual goal was to create what is now Sadie’s Place; a transitional housing shelter for victims of domestic violence and their children.
