Welcome to My Manchester! This is your one-stop site for Greater Manchester residents and community partners who want a better life for themselves and their children, who are looking for neighborhood-based connections to become more involved in local health improvement efforts, and who are seeking resources for personal growth. My Manchester is “for the people and by the people” because we know that when neighbors have close ties and trust each other, they are able to achieve more together. We are working with you to make Manchester’s schools and neighborhoods more health-promoting and are dedicated to celebrating all of the positive events and resources that exist throughout the City. You and your family can help us to share all that is good about living in your neighborhood with the goal of sparking even greater neighborhood pride. Research has also shown that residents who give back to the community or to something bigger than themselves have fewer stress-related illnesses and better lifelong health. The bottom line – Our City, Our Region, and Our Future – is what we make it.
We encourage you to learn more about Manchester’s history and all that our community has to offer by visiting each neighborhood profile. Submit a neighborhood photo, event or news, or register with us to receive more information about ways to make our community healthier. Please feel free to Contact Us and give suggestions on how we can work together for a better Manchester.
OUR VISION: “Manchester will be a thriving ‘City of Neighborhoods’ designed to:
- Support opportunities for learning and employment;
- Increase access to resources for both healthcare and neighborhood-based services;
- Provide positive living spaces and places, including both home and neighborhood,
- Increase neighborhood pride and connections and improve safety; and
- Promote healthy choices and options that support healthy living.
