The Kinship Navigation Program is community-based and designed to strengthen and support the wellbeing of kinship caregivers, children, and their families. The program is free, voluntary, and confidential and links kinship caregivers with state benefits, community resources, information and referrals, and offers supports such as food assistance, gas to get to appointments, school supplies, legal aid, additional financial assistance, and much more.
Placed in Family Resource Centers throughout the state, Kinship Navigators walk alongside caregivers and their families to ensure access to high-quality information, referral, and follow-up services that keep kinship families safe, strong, and successful.
The Period of PURPLE Crying is an educational program for parents on a developmental phase of increased infant crying. New Hampshire Children’s Trust leads the state's effort by providing technical assistance to hospitals that implement the program, supporting community-based providers who reinforce the program’s message and spreading public awareness through media, social media, and advertising campaigns.
The Children's Trust is proud to partner with Baby2Baby, a nonprofit that provides children living in poverty with diapers, clothing, and all the basic necessities that every child deserves. Since the COVID-19 pandemic began, Baby2Baby has distributed millions of essentials including diapers, clothing, and cleaning supplies to children across the country through the Baby2Baby National Program.
The Children's Trust is committed to preventing child abuse and neglect before it happens. Our programs are informed by practices that enable children, families, and communities to thrive. Learn more about the initiatives that guide our work HERE.
