New Horizons operates an adult homeless shelter, a soup kitchen, food pantry and Angie's Shelter for Women.
For shelter clients, many more services are available than simply a safe place to stay and have meals. On site, clients have access to case management services, referral services, medical and mental health services, substance abuse counseling, Alcoholics Anonymous meetings and Narcotics Anonymous meetings.
Angie's Shelter for Women
Angie's Shelter for Women provides a safe structured, home-like environment where clients have access to the support and services they need while working to rebuild their lives. This shelter is open to women 18 years and older, who come due to varied circumstances such as release from incarceration, substance abuse, domestic violence, and those ineligible at other agencies.Soup Kitchen
The soup kitchen serves breakfast for shelter guests daily. It also serves a complete dinner to seniors (over 50) at 3:00 p.m. (weekdays) and for individuals, children and their families beginning at 4:30 daily. The soup kitchen serves over 200 meals a day. In 2016 a partnership was formed with Families in Transition's Family Place Resource Center and Shelter. New Horizons will be staffing and running their kitchen which provides dinner seven days per week.
The food pantry provides groceries to impoverished families and individuals in Manchester. The amount provided to each household is dependent upon family size. Along with non perishable food items, there are also fruits, vegetables, meats and bakery items available. Most of these items are donated by area Hannafords as well as Whole Foods, The Fruit Center, Coca-Cola, Longhorn Steakhouse, Olive Garden and Starbucks. Generous individuals and groups routinely conduct food drives on New Horizons behalf as well.
The pantry provides food to over 900 households each month.
