Greetings!

2019 is off to a great start here at Manchester Community Health Center. Take a moment to check out how we are kicking off the new year and working to improve healthcare services in Manchester!
MORNING MATTERS 2019
SAVE THE DATE
Mark your calendars for May 23, 2019 and join us for this year's Morning Matters breakfast! 
There are many issues that impact a child's ability to access quality healthcare. From a lack of insurance coverage, transportation, language barriers, food insecurity, domestic violence, and trauma; Manchester Community Health Center works tirelessly to help families overcome these often debilitating factors so that children are able to receive the healthcare they need.

That is why each year we host Morning Matters, our largest fundraiser, to remind all of us that Morning Matters because children matter!
Thank you to our sponsors who have already committed to the success of this year's event!

STRATEGIC PLANNING UNDERWAY TO SUPPORT EARLY CHILDHOOD PROGRAMS AND SERVICES
Project LAUNCH (Linking Actions for Unmet Needs in Children's Health) began six years ago as part of a federal initiative to provide children, under the age of eight, with the social, cognitive, and emotional skills needed to grow successfully.

“This incredibly successful project has improved the lives of young children and families and has great potential to continue to do so,” said Christina Lachance, Director of Early Childhood and Family Initiatives at the New Hampshire Charitable Foundation and member of the Project LAUNCH advisory board.
Project LAUNCH has played a key role in increasing developmental screening for children; integrating behavioral health into primary care; improving practices for early childhood teachers; improving home visitation, family strengthening and parent education programs; and establishing the Adverse Childhood Response Team (ACERT). ACERT works with the Manchester Police Department and YWCA New Hampshire to respond to situations where children have been affected by violence or other trauma. The reach of these programs and services have impacted over 1,800 children in Manchester.
IMPROVING THE PATIENT EXPERIENCE AT MCHC
Manchester Community Health Center is always looking to improve our patient experience by staying current with technology.

We are excited to announce that patients can now view statements and make payments online!

This new payment option provides an added level of convenience at no additional charge. Since its introduction in December 2018, online bill pay has already made the bill paying experience easier for our patients and staff.
YOUR SUPPORT MAKES IT ALL POSSIBLE!
