Poetry for Foster Care

  • RiverRun Bookstore 142 Fleet Street Portsmouth, NH, 03801 United States (map)

New Hampshire foster care is in trouble. In order to raise awareness and money for the foster care system in New Hampshire, a group of young poets and prose writers will be gathering to perform their work.

The number of children in the New Hampshire foster care system has been rapidly increasing since 2014, the Division of Children, Youth, and Families (DCYF) finds. Along with the growing number of foster children, the system is plagued by a lack of foster families and resources. Some are calling the situation a crisis. Come hear the youth of New Hampshire as they speak in solidarity with their peers, and show your support for our state’s most vulnerable children.
