Manchester Community Health Center

2019 Goals:

MCHC provides high-quality primary care, prenatal care and support services to over 16,000 patients 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 wraparound 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 Manchester Community Health Center hosts the Morning Matters Breakfast, our largest fundraiser of the year. For the past 11 years, this event has brought together leaders from local businesses, government and the community to support uncompensated healthcare for the more than 5,000 underserved children in Greater Manchester. 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 and Twitter. 

Giving Opportunities:

MCHC relies on donations, sponsorships and in-kind giving from individuals, corporations and foundations to best assist our patients with wraparound services.  Donations can be made securely online at Additional ways to give include making a gift in honor or memory of a loved one or establish a legacy gift set up through your estate planning.

Volunteer Opportunities:

The volunteers at Manchester Community Health Center contribute to the success of our support programs. Our volunteers hold a variety of roles such as serving as board members, fundraising event volunteers or family literacy night workshop volunteers. Volunteer efforts help make our community great.
