Foundation for Seacoast Health Grants $317,600 to Families First

Portsmouth – The Foundation for Seacoast Health has granted $317,600 to Families First Health and Support Center, the Seacoast’s community health center. The grant will support general operations – including health, dental and family programs – and special projects such as bi-monthly luncheons for seniors held at the Community Campus, cervical cancer screenings, and a group to help families improve their diet and exercise habits.

Having supported Families First since 1986, the Foundation for Seacoast Health is the longest-standing of the foundations that support Families First, as well as the largest foundation donor.

The Foundation for Seacoast Health is one of the largest private charitable foundations in New Hampshire, created in 1984 with private endowments and the proceeds of the sale of the Portsmouth Hospital to Hospital Corporation of America. The mission of the Foundation is to invest its resources to improve the health and well being of Seacoast residents. More information is available at 603-422-8200 or
