Unsung Hero Awards

Do you know a parent who deserves recognition? Nominate them for our Unsung Hero Awards.

For the past 9 years, New Hampshire Children's Trust has honored parents at The New Hampshire State House in partnership with the Governor's office. Why were they honored? The honorees incorporate the 5 Protective Factors into their daily lives to help be stronger mothers, fathers, grandparents, caregivers and friends. The 5 Protective Factors are:

  • Parental Resilience: I can overcome hard times and bounce back.
  • Social Connections: I have people who know and support me.
  • Knowledge of Parenting and Child Development: I know where to go to find out about parenting skills and my child’s developmental growth.
  • Concrete Support in Times of Need: I know where to turn to for help.
  • Social and Emotional Competence of Children: I know how to help my children talk about their feelings.

Parenting can be really hard. Please take a moment to nominate a parent or caretaker that has made an effort by using some of the above strategies and Protective Factors to improve family life.
