Post-adoption/guardianship support services

Post-adoption services are provided by the New Hampshire Department of Health and Human Services. Learn about available services and how to access them on the state’s Post-Adoption Information website

Parent support groups

Below are support groups for adoptive, kinship, and foster families. Support groups may be offered as part of a state’s post-adoption/guardianship support program, through a statewide or regional foster or adoptive parent association, through specific agencies, or may be run independently. If we have additional information about the group’s purpose or the community served, it’s provided under the group’s contact information.

To add a group or make a suggestion, email the AdoptUSKids family support team.
