About the Summit: The NH Children’s Trust has held eight successful Strengthening Families Summits and a variety of other conferences and trainings. Approximately 250 providers, community leaders and parents from New Hampshire and beyond attend the summit yearly. The Summit is based around the Strengthening Families Framework, a research-based, cost-effective approach to in­crease family strengths, enhance child development and reduce the risk of child abuse and neglect. It focuses on building five protective factors that promote healthy outcomes and actions anyone can take to promote these factors in families.

The 2020 Summit will focus on successful strategies to promote family strengths at the individual, family and community  levels.  We invite those who are doing such work in their communities to showcase it at the conference.
