What we do

Our Services

Housing

We provide a structured living environment in which the children, with the help of dedicated staff, are encouraged to utilize adaptive coping techniques and build on social skills.

Education

We provide academic tutoring, in-school support and help teach our children the independent living skills that they need to transition to independent living.

Family

The ultimate goal of our program is to help children reunite with their families, which is accomplished by our wide variety of family-focused services. 

Community

We are only able to continue to help children in need because of the generous individuals and organizations in the Dover community and we show our gratitude by being as involved with our community as possible. 

Get Involved Today

  

Dover Children’s Home has been able to provide services to NH’s most vulnerable children and their families for over 128 years, but only with the philanthropy and support of our community.  There is more than one way to help us continue our mission of supporting youth in their path to living successful, productive and positive lives.
