14TH ANNUAL

UNSUNG HERO AWARDS

Congratulations to our 14th annual Unsung Heroes!

In an effort to acknowledge the powerful work parents do every day, the Children’s Trust recognizes extraordinary parents, caregivers, or guardians across New Hampshire during the month of February in honor of Parent Recognition Month.

Historically the Unsung Hero Award celebration was held in the Governor and Council Chambers at the NH Statehouse, but due to Covid-19, our 2021 celebration will be held virtually throughout the month of February. Parents and caregivers served by Family Resource Centers across New Hampshire will be honored through daily social media posts. 

Follow us on social media and help us celebrate our 14th annual Unsung Heroes!

Congratulations from Governor Chris Sununu

This year’s Heroes were nominated by local Family Resource Centers. New Hampshire’s statewide network of family support helps keep families safe, strong, and successful. Connect with your local Family Resource Center and discover family supports near you.
