Services and Resources

Need a Ride?

Public transportation is essential to support people's independence and connect them to social activities, economic opportunities, and community services. The Goffstown shuttle (MTA Bus) is the primary form of public transportation service in town. It is an on-demand program available to residents of all ages, with a special emphasis on older adults and seniors. The Manchester Transit Authority also runs a shopper shuttle every Tuesday morning for Goffstown Residents to Hannaford (Bedford).

Housing

An estimated 36% of Goffstown’s households include at least one individual age 60 or older, and one third of those are held by a resident age 60 or older living alone. The physical features of a home are critical to enable residents to age in place and maintain their living arrangement. Many resources are available to help Goffstown residents maintain their independence through affordable housing, home modification and retrofit.

Health, Wellness & Social Activities

Physical activities and social interactions improve health, mobility, quality of life, and fight senior isolation and loneliness. Goffstown residents have many options of activities through the Parks and Recreation, the Library and several independent groups that are very active around town.

Nutrition Program & Meals on Wheels

Adequate nutrition is necessary for health, immune system strength, functionality and the ability to remain independent. Meals on Wheels ensures that seniors have access to adequate nutrition even when family support, mobility and resources are lacking. The Goffstown Network runs the town's food pantry in the Parish House of St. Matthew's Episcopal Church (7 N. Mast St.), distributing grocery products and perishable foods to the community. In addition to local nutrition programs, there are other federal programs available to assist families and individuals who have limited food resources.

Consult a Social Worker

Low income residents may be entitled to assistance with rent, food, utilities and maintenance items. For further information regarding Goffstown's assistance programs, contact the Welfare Office at 497-8990 x103.
