For twelve years 1269 Café Ministries has been a Christian street outreach for the homeless, and those on the edge in Manchester.  We are a non-profit 501c3 organization located in Manchester, NH

For years we have provided hot meals, showers, clothing, laundry service, short term storage lockers, and onsite support services such as medical care, recovery meetings, counseling, job training and placement, in a safe and wholesome environment for those in need to come and seek refuge.  With the purchase of our new building, the former St. Casimir School at 456 Union Street, both our space and our mission have expanded.  While we have spent years serving and loving the homeless it is clear now that we can, and should, do more.

For someone to qualify for our transformational living program they must be chronically homeless, willing to take steps towards sobriety, willing to work on mental health stability, and demonstrate a true desire to change the patterns of homelessness, addiction, and illness in their lives.
