Our programs

SOURCE: Self-reported by organization

What are the organization's current programs, how do they measure success, and who do the programs serve?

Primary and Prenatal Health Care

A family practice offering affordable medical care for men, women and children, including chronic disease management, preventive exams, acute-illness care and round-the-clock coverage. Also, comprehensive prenatal care for teens and low-income women, including obstetric care, nutrition counseling, substance abuse counseling and social work services.

Population(s) Served
Economically disadvantaged people

Ongoing preventive, restorative and emergency care, provided in a community health center setting. Also, a school-based oral health education, screening, cleaning and sealant program and a mobile dental program for people experiencing homelessness.

Population(s) Served
Economically disadvantaged people

Goodwin Community Health and Families First were among the first practices in our region to fully integrate behavioral/mental health counseling with primary care. This not only increases access to behavioral and mental health services (which are in short supply locally), but fully integrates them with primary care, addressing the strong link between mental and physical health and the prevalence of co-occurring medical and mental conditions. Families First and Goodwin also provide substance-abuse counseling, an Intensive Outpatient Program and Medication-Assisted Recovery.

Population(s) Served
Economically disadvantaged people

Parenting classes and parent support groups, with free child care to make it easier for familes to attend.

Play/education groups for parents with their babies, toddlers and preschoolers

Individualized family support, including care coordination and home visiting, targeted at families with special needs such as being at risk for child abuse and neglect, having a chronically ill child, or having other risk factors.

Population(s) Served
Children and youth

Mobile health care teams provide primary care, substance abuse counseling, dental care and social work services to people at shelters, public housing facilities and other sites convenient for homeless and other people with low incomes, throughout a two-county area in New Hampshire.

Population(s) Served
Homeless people
Economically disadvantaged people

Balance sheet

Fiscal Year: Jan 01 - Dec 31

SOURCE: IRS Form 990

The balance sheet gives a snapshot of the financial health of an organization at a particular point in time. An organization's total assets should generally exceed its total liabilities, or it cannot survive long, but the types of assets and liabilities must also be considered. For instance, an organization's current assets (cash, receivables, securities, etc.) should be sufficient to cover its current liabilities (payables, deferred revenue, current year loan, and note payments). Otherwise, the organization may face solvency problems. On the other hand, an organization whose cash and equivalents greatly exceed its current liabilities might not be putting its money to best use.
