Small Nonprofits Working to Improve the Child Protection System in New Hamshire




The New Road Project aims to challenge New Hampshire's child protection system for change through the advocacy of better laws and policies, and through education of families and professionals.

Our work directly enables them to navigate the state's child protection infrastructure and learn how to effectively advocate and take action for themselves and loved ones.


Monetary donations, big and small, are most welcome and directly help us to fulfill our mission of activism, advocacy, and education about the child protection system. 


Thank you in advance!


A virtual vigil and memorial will take place during the event to honor those adversely affected by the child protection system. If you’d like to recognize a family or child, please submit their first name only through the form below.
