Child and Family Services
Be a Strong Voice for a Child
In the coming year, we will continue to focus on these strategic imperatives: 1. To even out the playing field for New Hampshire’s most vulnerable citizens by providing equal access to high quality, affordable, life-changing services. 2. To enhance our impact within communities across the state, providing workers in homes, schools, prisons, hospitals, courts, neighborhoods, streets –wherever you need us to be—to deliver a vast array of services tailored to specific needs. 3. To recruit and retain staff who are tops in their respective fields as we continue to be responsive to community needs and expand programs throughout our geographic regions. 4. Increase revenue streams of unrestricted funds to bridge funding gaps and improve long-range sustainability of programs.
CFS Celebration 2017: A mission-centric, banquet-styled, multi-media event designed to celebrate our community involvement, honor an exemplary advocate for children, and renew our commitment to NH citizens. The event takes place October 17, 2017 at Manchester Country Club.
WZID Christmas is for Kids Radiothon 2017: A live broadcast to fulfill holiday wishes of children in need, and support vital services for struggling families. Airs on 95.7 WZID-FM, December 7 & 8, 2017.
CFS SleepOut 2018: A cold night spent outside to raise awareness and funds to aid New Hampshire youth who are experiencing homelessness. Proceeds fulfill basic needs such as food and clothing, and support mental health and substance misuse counseling, educational advocacy, job training and housing.

CFS is fueled by charity and relies on support from individuals, corporations, foundations, United Way, special events, endowment income, and grants. If you are interested in developing a relationship with CFS, contact our development office, 603-518-4205, or visit www.cfsnh.org.
CFS offers many high impact/low investment volunteer opportunities for businesses, employees and managers to engage in a community project and support our work with children and families. Camp Spaulding: Conduct a drive to support camperships for low income youth, children of incarcerated parents or a specific program at camp (equine program, theater program, wood-shop for girls). Coordinate with your colleagues a pre-or post-season camp work day. Conduct an employee or customer camp kit drive and gather items to help outfit children for camp — sleeping bags, backpacks, towels, toiletries, sun screen, etc. Youth Resource Center: Host a barbeque or holiday party for Center youth. Teach a skill-building workshop (job interview skills, resume writing, personal finance). Host a clothing, food or personal care item drive. Adopt a Building: Engage in fall/spring clean up and provide periodic home improvement (painting, landscaping, furnishings) to one of our transitional living homes or office locations. Advisory Board: Serve on a local advisory board to help forward the mission of CFS. Serve as an advocate, ambassador, fundraiser, or partner with CFS, to develop community resources.
