The Grapevine receives $25k Grant!

The Grapevine Family & Community Resource Center recently received a $25,000 grant from the New Hampshire Charitable Foundation through its NH Tomorrow Fund, the Henry L. and Patricia J. Nielsen Fund and a Monadnock Challenge Grant. The grant will support a number of their Family Support Programs and Services including parent support and education, children’s enrichment and home visiting.

Executive Director Melissa Gallagher said, “The New Hampshire Charitable Foundation’s investment supports the many programs that we offer to young children and families with a focus on those that are most economically vulnerable. The Grapevine has always been committed to serving all, regardless of financial need. This is an important opportunity to serve a greater number of families who experience barriers in accessing programs and resources in our community. We can provide greater scholarship, outreach and targeted supports based on the individual needs of each family. We are honored to be entrusted with this funding.”
