NHTrust Supports Step Up Parents

NHTrust is pleased to be able to support Step Up Parents with a $500 donation. This money will help Step Up Parents provide gift cards to many of their selfless kinship caregivers to purchase gifts for the children in their care this holiday season. This program helps promote cheer, create fond memories and provide a sense of peace during an often-stressful time of the year for these kinship families throughout New Hampshire.

Step Up Parents helps to provide financial assistance to kinship caregivers in New Hampshire who are raising the children of parents with substance use disorder. These kinship caregivers are relatives or friends who step up to care for, nurture and protect children who find themselves without a responsible parent or safe place to live. For these caregivers, the most immediate need is often financial. Step Up Parents respond by striving to meet every family’s individual needs, whether it is aid with the cost of daycare, clothing, baby supplies, music lessons, legal fees or a special camp for a struggling child. To learn more about how you can support their efforts go to their website at www.stepupparents.org.

“We are pleased to have the support of NHTrust for this year’s holiday giving program,” said Denyse Richter, Executive Director and Founder of Step Up Parents. “Our families have responded to this program with overwhelming appreciation, and together with your help, we will make this season brighter for deserving kinship families.”
