The City of Manchester Health Department (MHD) has partnered with the Manchester School District to provide an experienced Community Health Worker to assist students/families experiencing homelessness with basic needs. The CHW can connect students/families to medical, dental, and vision providers; help them secure health insurance; assist them in completing applications or determining eligibility for Medicaid, WIC/Food Stamps, fuel/rental assistance, and other financial assistance; and connect
them to resources for food, clothing, housing, and other basic needs and social supports.
The Manchester Historic Association is one of the city’s most dynamic institutions and a significant force in Manchester’s economic and cultural growth. The organization is active in the Greater Manchester Chamber of Commerce, and it collaborates with other nonprofit organizations in many ways. It is supported by its members and other donors in the community, and also by corporate, government and foundation grants. Education is one of our most important missions, and Manchester Proud is the type of organization that can only enhance our ability to fulfill that mission.
Programs are offered at the Millyard Museum at 200 Bedford Street and at the MHA Research Center at 129 Amherst Street. The MHA also offers walking tours of the city’s Millyard, historic neighborhoods and cemeteries.
The City of Manchester Health Department works with the Manchester School District to bring dental care to children in need at Manchester’s elementary, middle, and high schools. Dental care is provided on a dental van at each school during school hours by a certified Public Health Dental Hygienist and, when needed, a licensed dentist. Students can also be referred to local dental offices for ongoing dental care. The program serves an average of 600 students each school year at all 21 Manchester public schools.
