NH DHHS - Temporary Relocation of Manchester District Office Operations

Concord, NH – The New Hampshire Department of Health and Human Services

(DHHS) is relocating operations for the Manchester District Office. While

the Department continues to pursue a long-term District Office location in

Manchester, DHHS staff working at the current location at 195 McGregor

Street will temporarily relocate to other DHHS offices effective September

8, 2015.

To limit disruptions for DHHS clients in Manchester, Division of Client

Services staff who interact with DHHS clients in person will relocate to

the Stark Building at 1234 River Road in Manchester, where they will

continue to meet with clients after the move. New Hampshire Employment

Program staff is moving to 60 Rogers Street, Suite 201, where they will

hold all meetings and appointments. Manchester DO staff in the Division of

Children, Youth and Families, the New Hampshire Employment Program, the

Division of Child Support Services, and the Bureau of Elderly and Adult

Services will work out of other DHHS offices.

While the physical address will change, the mailing address and all phone

numbers for Manchester DO staff will remain unchanged.

“We are working with the staff in Manchester to limit disruptions during

this short-notice and unexpected move,” said Mary Ann Cooney, Associate

Commissioner, DHHS Office of Human Services. “Ensuring our clients continue

to receive services in the timely and professional manner they have come to

expect is our top priority. While understandably challenging, this is a

temporary situation as we continue to seek a new, permanent location for

the Manchester District Office.”

Interruption to business operations will be minimized as much as possible.

Relocation will begin at 2:00 pm on Friday, September 4 and is expected to

last through Thursday, September 10, during which time some voicemail or

email accounts for some staff members may not be in service. Individuals

unable to reach Manchester DO staff during the relocation can call (800)

852-3345 for assistance. All Manchester District Office mail should

continue to be sent to 195 McGregor Street, South Tower, Suite 110,

Manchester, NH 03102.

DHHS will host a public meeting to answer questions about the temporary

relocation at 6:00 pm on Thursday, September 10, 2015, in the chapel of the

Sununu Youth Services Center in Manchester. For more information, visit
