News and Events

MVAP is currently offering to assist clients remotely through phone to reduce the risk to clients during the pandemic. If a client prefers to come to the office for their meeting, masks are required at all times and they must cover both nose and mouth. If you do not have a mask one can be provided. All in office visits are currently by appointment only as there is only 1 space in Concord and 2 rooms in Manchester large enough to allow for the 6 feet social distancing requirements. The agency received a donation of masks for clients from Bedford Sewing Battalion. The Bedford Sewing Battalion is volunteer based group that makes masks for those in need.

December 2019 the agency partnered with Toys for Tots and Doogie’s Bar and Grill to collect toys and gifts for children of clients (18 and under). A huge Thank You to those who donated items!
