Start Small. Think Big.

Because the future of the entire Monadnock Region depends on the success of our youngest citizens.

Impact Monadnock is a long-term investment and we’ll need commitment and patience, because it will be decades before our community reaps the benefits of investing in our youngest children.

-Robert Collinsworth, Detective, Keene Police Department

I am involved with Impact Monadnock because it really does take a village to raise kids to be happy, healthy and productive people and the people of this region need to know this and become involved.

-Kathy Fisher, Parent, and Pediatrician, Dartmouth- Hitchcock Keene

-Rich Randall, Director of Operations, Polyonics, Inc., Westmoreland

A strong early foundation is essential to the development of the next generation of healthy, competent adults who will become the stewards of the Monadnock community.

-Marjorie Droppa, Ph.D, Project Director, Impact Monadnock

Nearly every religious tradition recognizes the command to love our neighbors. People of faith have a central role to play in helping families in our communities who are facing tough challenges.

-Rev. Dr. Bob Marrone, Pastor, Congregational Church, Peterborough
