Programs & Outreach
Mobile Van Outreach
The City of Nashua Division of Public Health and Community Services Community Health Department (DPHCS CHD) has been providing outreach services on a mobile van for over 25 years. We have served thousands of clients and built a relationship within the Greater Nashua Community. We are very excited to announce that we are hitting the road again in our new and improved van. The van will have scheduled departures and also will be available as needed for events and activities.
The schedule for our mobile van is TBD at this time ... stay tuned for monthly updates in the new year. Check our Facebook for daily updates on our activities, health news, and what's happening!
