MANCHESTER, NH – Beginning  Tuesday September 8, the New Hampshire Department of Health and Human Services will relocate Manchester District Office operations from the current Mill West location on McGregor Street to the Stark House, 1234 River Road. A 10-year lease on the building, signed in 2004, has expired.

While the Department continues to pursue a long-term location in Manchester, District Office staff will relocate to other DHHS offices temporarily.

The New Hampshire Department of Health and Human Services
(DHHS) will host two public meetings on September 10, to provide information regarding the temporary relocation of Manchester District Office operations and to discuss the future of the Sununu Youth Services Center (SYSC).

The SYSC meeting is being hosted by the Legislative Continuing Resolution Workgroup: Sununu Youth Services Center Transformation Plan.

The first meeting, hosted by DHHS Associate Commissioner Mary Ann Clooney
will be held at 6 p.m. on September 10, to give neighbors, clients, and other interested parties the opportunity to learn more and ask questions about the temporary relocation. The Chapel of the Sununu Youth Services Center, 1056 North River Road, Manchester.

The Legislative Continuing Resolution Workgroup: Sununu Youth Services
Center Transformation Plan, chaired by Senator David Boutin, will host a
public meeting at 7 p.m. on September 10, to discuss the future
of the Sununu Youth Services Facility. DHHS representatives will also
participate in the public meeting.

stark house locationMoving without a permanent location is going to present challenges to our staff, clients and neighbors.

The Department’s main focus during this transition is to minimize the impact of this move on the clients served in the Manchester district office.

  • Division of Client Services staff 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 will be moving to 60 Rogers Street, Suite 201, where they will hold all meetings and appointments.
  • Manchester district office staff in the Division of Children, Youth and Families, the New Hampshire Employment Program, and the Bureau of Elderly and Adult Services will work out of other DHHS buildings in the area. While the physical address for staff will change, the mailing address and all phone numbers for Manchester DO staff will remain unchanged.

We are working to ensure that our clients continue to receive services in the timely and professional manner they have come to expect from the Manchester district office staff. We understand that there will be inconveniences due to these circumstances and we are committed to making this move as seamless as possible. We thank you for your patience during this difficult transition.

Portsmouth-based Maestro Fund, a private equity investment company, owns the Mill West space, which is leased out by Brady-Sullivan Properties.
