Speak Up TNRP
In October, NHPR announced that DCYF was soliciting feedback from all NH stakeholders, including youth and families, found in the article here.
However, upon closer inspection, what DCYF is actually asking for is information about potential future services that they can use for contracts and procurement - information and feedback that laypeople would not have to offer.
The New Road Project does not want to see an opportunity for community feedback be squandered, and for families and others to give up in frustration. We are collecting anonymous feedback that we will compile and present not only to DCYF, but to Governor Sununu, the Office of the Child Advocate, the DCYF Advisory board, members of the legislature, and the media.
We hear every day from families who have feedback about how the system can change for the better, and we're asking you to trust us with your time and emotional effort in offering your feedback and joining it together with families and others just like you and yours across NH.
Especially as the 2020 legislative session draws close and is being packed with bills focused on child protection reform, let's use this opportunity to start fresh together and speak our minds as a community to tell those in power what is important to us as families, professionals, and citizens on this issue.
ANYONE can participate - family members, youth, general community members, helping professionals, DCYF staff - we will absolutely keep your outreach confidential.
After the Nov. 15th deadline, we will compile all of the suggestions, email them to the parties listed above and update this community to reflect outcomes. Thank you for dedication to child advocacy!

While you're welcome to include any personal stories or details, please know that the only thing being submitted to 3rd parties is actual feedback/suggestions/guidance on what DCYF needs to improve to better serve families while protecting your information and ensuring your confidentiality.
