New Futures

2019 Goals:

New Futures is committed to advocating for policy change to improve the health and wellness of all New Hampshire residents during the 2019 legislative session. To do so, we will continue to grow coalitions and empower strong advocates throughout the state, combining their work with the subject matter expertise of our policy coordinators and strategic communications staff. Each year, New Futures weighs in on hundreds of pieces of legislation which affect health and wellness in the Granite State. In 2019, we will advocate for positive policy change in each of our five issue areas: alcohol and other drugs, early childhood development, health, access to treatment and children’s behavioral health.

Fundraising Events:

New Futures holds an annual awards event each fall, where we recognize exceptional work across the state to improve New Hampshire’s health and wellness. The event will be held on October 11, 2018 from 4:30-6:30 p.m. at the Grappone Conference Center in Concord. We gratefully accept donations and sponsorships to support our work and offset the cost of this event for our advocates and policymakers.

Giving Opportunities:

You have the power to make true, long-term change in the Granite State. Donations help New Futures effectively educate our policymakers and ensure community voices are heard throughout the legislative process. In recent years, thanks to generous community support and contributions, New Futures has successfully advocated to expand access to child care and full-day kindergarten, guarantee increased funding to end our substance misuse crisis, ensure healthcare access to over 50,000 Granite Staters, and more. Visit to give and be a part of creating lasting change for the Granite State.

Advocacy Opportunities:

New Hampshire is unique in that the public has the opportunity to interact with all 424 of our state’s lawmakers directly, ensuring community voices are not lost in the legislative process. New Futures has a community of over 1,000 trained advocates who use their stories and voices to make a difference for New Hampshire’s health and wellness.
