Each year, the New Hampshire Children's Trust honors twenty-nine parents for the twenty-nine days of February—Parent Recognition Month. We ask members of the community to nominate parents and caregivers who incorporate the Five Protective Factors into their parenting and build and draw on natural support networks within their families and communities.
This year, we received over fifty Unsung Hero Award nominations, representing many deserving parents in all ten counties across New Hampshire.  
Our nominating committee members read each of the heart-felt and moving nominations carefully and had a difficult time choosing just twenty-nine. Please see the full list of our 2020 Unsung Hero Award recipients below!
