Hugh’s Place Transitional Housing
Hugh’s Place is a Peer-Operated Transitional Housing Program for Adult Individuals with Mental Health and Temporary Housing needs.
Located on the third floor of our 13 Orange Street facility in Manchester, Hugh’s Place offers short-term shelter to individuals who are in the process of re-entering the community after having received inpatient or residential services for mental wellness challenges. Services to our residents include the development of individualized Wellness Plans, along with regular access to all programs offered by the Peer Support Center located on the first floor. Additional services include assistance with obtaining benefits, referrals to community based services and finding permanent housing.
To qualify for placement at Hugh’s Place, first and foremost is a willingness to make a commitment toward your own wellness.
