New Hampshire Children’s Trust

2022 Goals:

NH Children’s Trust (NHCT) is New Hampshire’s statewide lead for the prevention of child abuse and neglect. NHCT works to strengthen families and communities across the Granite State, so all children thrive by:

  • Creating public awareness of New Hampshire’s network of Family Resource Centers and programs so Granite State families have access to support.
  • Expanding family support programs to meet the needs of NH children and families.
  • Providing training, technical assistance and professional development opportunities to family-strengthening agencies who work directly with thousands of families throughout NH.
  • Creating the Kinship Navigation program within NH Family Resource Centers to connect grandparents and relative caregivers to services and supports specific to their family’s needs.
  • Creating, maintaining and expanding a centralized data system to measure the impact of NH Family Resource Centers and advocate for the needs of NH families.

Fundraising Events:

Throughout the year, NHCT hosts four events whose proceeds support access to family resources across the state. There are volunteer and sponsorship opportunities available for:

  • Unsung Hero Awards (February) — 20 parents, caregivers or guardians who have taken meaningful steps to improve the life of their family or the lives of those around them.
  • Child Abuse Prevention Month (April) — month-long celebration of the importance of families and communities working together to build safe, stable and nurturing environments, preventing child abuse and neglect.
  • Strengthening Families Summit (September) — annual day-long conference convening parents, caregivers and professionals from across the region to showcase community impact and family resilience.
  • Ride for Resilience (October) — bicycle ride across NH raising awareness of the statewide resources available to all NH families.
