Other Helpful Organizations

These are organizations that can help you with issues that go beyond our services. Be sure to look at the services we offer as well when you're looking for help - you can see services beyond primary care available for our patients here, and available to the entire community here. We encourage our patients to talk to their providers about issues they're having that affect their health and well-being.

If you don't find what you're looking for here, please call and make an appointment to talk with your provider or a social worker, who can help you access services that will assist with your situation. You can also use www.211nh.org or www.211maine.org by visiting the website for your state or calling 211 (TTY 603-634-3388 in NH and 211 in Maine). Calling will connect you with a person who can help you find what you need.
