LUCY FOWLKES BREED
Congratulations to Terri Clyde, our 10th annual Lucy Fowlkes Breed Family Service Vounteer Award recipient!
The New Hampshire Children’s Trust is thrilled to announce Terri Clyde of Merrimack as the 10th annual Lucy Fowlkes Breed Family Service Volunteer Award winner. Terri has spent over 15 years as a volunteer at the Nashua Adult Learning Center and their Early Childhood Adventures Program (ECAP).
Also an active advocate and kinship caregiver, Terri works to highlight the lack of case management and medical care for children five and under once diagnosed with mental illness. Among other contributions, she produces wonderful brochures outlining the importance and promotion of the Strengthening Families Framework and the 5 Protective Factors.
"She is an angel among people and a genuine advocate for children and families in need of mental health supports and services."
Her nominator, Jane Marquis, Child Care Coordinator at the Nashua Adult Learning Center, says, “It would be difficult to put a price or a number of hours spent on the efforts that Terri put forth these past 15+ years. [She] is an angel among people and a genuine advocate for children and families in need of mental health supports and services.”
All of Terri’s commitments are volunteer positions and she is committed to attending, participating, and contributing to each organization from the perspective of a parent, grandparent, human service professional, and the amazingly selfless, caring individual she truly is.
Congratulations, Terri, our 10th annual Lucy Fowlkes Breed Family Service Volunteer Award recipient!
Every year, New Hampshire Children’s Trust awards the Lucy Fowlkes Breed Family Service Volunteer Award.

A virtual celebration will take place and a monetary award will be presented.
Lucy Fowlkes Breed served as a founding trustee on the Board of NH Children's Trust, dedicating fourteen years as a board member, eight of those years as board chair. Knowing there was a need in the community, Lucy also founded and was the volunteer facilitator of the “New Moms” group at the Children’s Place and Parent Education Center—a Family Resource Center in Concord.
