Amoskeag Health

2020 Goals:

Amoskeag Health provides high-quality primary care, behavioral health, specialty and support services to nearly 18,000 patients, speaking 62 different languages, in the Greater Manchester area. We continually strive for better health outcomes, better patient care and lower costs by utilizing innovative care models and strong community partnerships. We are continuing to expand our medication-assisted treatment and behavioral health services to meet the growing need. We are also focused on ensuring our wrap-around services meet the needs of our community through programs like case management, interpretation, optometry, podiatry, nutrition, transportation, emergency food pantry, WIC, Medicaid and health insurance marketplace enrollment.

Fundraising Events:

Each year, Amoskeag Health hosts the Morning Matters Breakfast, our largest fundraiser of the year. For the past 12 years, this event has brought together leaders from local businesses, government and the community to support uncompensated healthcare for nearly 6,000 underserved children in Greater Manchester. Approximately 78% of Amoskeag Health patients live below 200% of the 2018 Federal Poverty Level ($42,661 for a family of 3). For additional information about Morning Matters or to learn more about other events we are planning, please visit our website at or follow us on Facebook, LinkedIn and Twitter.

Giving Opportunities:

Amoskeag Health is a Federally Qualified Health Center (FQHC) that relies on donations, sponsorships and in-kind giving from individuals, corporations and foundations in order to assist our patients with non-reimbursable wrap-around services. These include language interpretation, transportation, emergency food and diapers, and dental referrals. Donations are received through donor-advised-funds, a secure online giving portal at, and bank checks mailed directly to 145 Hollis Street. Additional ways to give include making a gift in honor or memory of a loved one or establishing a legacy gift established through your estate planning.

Volunteer Opportunities:

Volunteers at Amoskeag Health contribute to the success of our support programs. Our board of directors is entirely volunteer and open for new members. Amoskeag Health volunteers lend their talents and skills for fundraising, event planning and execution, family literacy workshops, healthy cooking classes and special committee assignments. Volunteer efforts help make our community great.
