Union Leader correspondent April Guilmet writes of the ribbon cutting held at Home Helpers on Tuesday, April 2, 2013.

LONDONDERRY – With more than two decades of military service and a number of community volunteering posts under her belt, Londonderry resident Bonnie Roberts already knew a thing or two about helping her neighbors.

Retired from the U.S. Navy, Roberts also ran the office at her husband Mark’s construction company for many years before spending some time working in law enforcement.

Bonnie Roberts of Home Helpers cuts the ribbon at her new location on Rockingham Road in Londonderry. Town Councilor John Farrell, left, and acting Town Manager Bill Hart, right, hold the ribbon ends.

When the time came to contemplate a career change, Roberts took a long, hard look at her life experiences.

“I stopped and asked myself, what does someone with a really strange background like my own have to offer?” Roberts said.

Having spent a lot of time visiting nursing home residents and also volunteering her services as an EMT technician, the answer slowly came into focus.
