Thank you to the Couch Family Foundation

The Couch Family Foundation has awarded a $7,500 grant to New Hampshire Humanities to support its Connections adult literacy program. Connections is offered in partnership with adult basic education and ESOL classes, prisons, and refugee resettlement organizations, with participants who are both native speakers and new Americans. The program uses quality children’s literature and New Hampshire Humanities-trained facilitators to promote English language skills; foster a culture of reading; nurture conversation in which readers contribute their own ideas, stories, and interpretations; and reinforce family literacy.

The Couch Family Foundation (CFF) creates and supports quality opportunities for children and families to learn and thrive so that they develop healthy, fulfilling lives. CCF works with nonprofit organizations operating in and serving northern New England, with an emphasis placed on organizations in the Upper Valley Region of New Hampshire and Vermont. Through its support of the Connections program, CFF continues its dedication to partnering with organizations like New Hampshire Humanities that create sustainable, positive change within our communities.
