Greater Manchester Region

Makin’ It Happen (MIH) has a rich history of providing consistent, evidence-based, research-informed programs and services within the region. Strategic plans are in development in collaboration with our partners and community representatives. The regional population of approximately 180,000 includes very small rural communities with populations of less than 10,000, as well as the city of Manchester, the largest city in the state of New Hampshire.

Throughout the years, MIH has been at the forefront of diverse prevention efforts within the region. Awarded the first Federal Drug Free Communities support grant (DFC) for a NH community in 1997, MIH has led the way in developing positive thinking around collaboration, building partnerships, and staying current within the ever-changing trends, research, and innovative prevention strategies.
