The City of Manchester first received Federal funding to support health care services for the City’s homeless population in 1987. This funding is utilized to provide primary medical care, oral health care, behavioral health care, substance abuse services and case management for homeless individuals.
Today, all services are provided by Catholic Medical Center’s Community Health Services Mobile Community Health Team (MCHT) under contract with the Manchester Health Department. Full health care services are primarily provided at New Horizons for New Hampshire five days per week and at Families in Transition two days per week. In addition to clinical space, both sites provide classrooms where the MCHT conducts health education, parenting classes, wellness programs, behavioral education groups, and recovery counseling sessions.
