How You Can Help


As a non-profit public charity, Dover Children’s Home has provided services to thousands of New Hampshire’s most vulnerable children for 120 years.  With severely limited state funding and annual budget cuts, monetary gifts and donations of any kind throughout the year allow the Home to provide activities, services, and programming to the children that would otherwise be unaffordable.
