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
