New Hampshire Children’s Trust is the Governor’s designated statewide community-based child abuse prevention agency, the New Hampshire chapter of Prevent Child Abuse America, and a member of the National Alliance of Children’s Trust & Prevention Funds.
Founded in 1986 as "New Hampshire Children’s Trust Fund," a quasi-governmental organization, the agency transitioned to "New Hampshire Children’s Trust, Inc.," a 501(c)(3) nonprofit corporation in 2011. We are a public charity and donations are tax deductible.
New Hampshire Children’s Trust is leading the drive to ensure safe, stable, and nurturing relationships and environments for children by educating, advocating, and collaborating.
We ensure parents have easy access to high-quality resources and support to help children develop the skills they need to thrive. We educate direct-service professionals, advocate for better policies to support parents, and connect with local agencies to strengthen families and lay the foundation for children's success.
We are focusing on innovative programs and trainings for child and family service professionals to provide high-quality, comprehensive resources and services for parents to raise children in a world where they can develop into healthy adults.
These programs focus on identifying family strengths and supporting parents and caregivers as they navigate parenthood. Through education, advocacy, collaboration, and investment, we build more supportive communities and enhance the healthy relationships and lives of children and families.
For families experiencing stress and upheaval, raising children is like sailing through rough waters. However, using this approach, we are confident we can provide the safe harbors they need to navigate these challenges and ensure families are safe, strong, and supported throughout the Granite State.
