NASHUA – Harbor Homes has received a $250,000 federal grant to expand mental health services as it prepares to open a rehabilitation Health and Wellness Center.

The grant, one of four given in New Hampshire and 221 around the country, comes via the 2014 Affordable Care Act Mental Health Service Expansion program.

It will help the three-decade-old agency “significantly expand” its mental and behavioral health care services, Habror Homes wrote in a prepared statement.

“We can hire new mental health servers, expand behavioral health and substance abuse disorder services,” said Associate Donna Collins.

As part of its new Harbor Care Health and Wellness Center, expected to open in October, the center will offer primary and preventive health care services, along with new assistance such as dental care, vision and audiology services, respite care, and a number of incentive programs to promote better health.

Since 1991, Harbor Homes has provided independent living and support or rehabilitative services to people with serious mental illness who are eligible for Medicaid, which offers health care for low-income individuals.

Harbor Homes is one of the six agencies that comprise the Partnership for Successful Living, provides a multitude of wrap around services to individuals and families who are challenged with the complex circumstances of homelessness or mental illness.

In New Hampshire, grants were also given to Goodwin Community Health in Somersworth; Manchester Community Health Center; and the city of Manchester.

Nationwide, approximately $55 million was granted, to be available throughout the fiscal year.
