DCYF has a new program that has just started up in the Manchester District Office.
It is called Community Connect and its’ purpose is to connect older youth in DCYF placement (14 and older) with at least one caring adult so they may receive additional support while in care and hopefully into the future.
Youth referred by their CPSW/JPPO will be asked if they want to re-connect with someone they had a previous relationship with like a relative, teacher, coach, boss etc. or if they would like to be matched with a volunteer mentor from the community based on shared interests.
If you have an interest in becoming a mentor for a youth in care living in the greater Manchester area please contact Deb Bradley at 603-665-8449 or Deborah.Bradley@dhhs.nh.gov
