CAST is partnered with many other coalitions and health based organizations in New Hampshire. We understand the need for a reliable and trusted support system which is why we are working collaboratively with many educational and social service agencies to build capacity in Souhegan Valley. Collectively we can increase protective factors in our community and we take pride in our networking efforts. We believe it takes a village to create a healthy community and connect people to the supports they need, we cannot do it alone.

Our team has tried to include a number of organizations that cover a variety of needs. If you don’t find what you are looking for here or would like us to consider putting your organization in our data base please feel free to reach out to us at castteam2018@gmail.com.

Along with the rest of the world, we’ve been closely monitoring the evolving situation with COVID-19. It has brought uncertainty and disruption to the communities we serve, but Boys & Girls Clubs of Souhegan Valley’s top priority has not changed: the health and safety of the children we serve.

I wanted to take a moment to keep you informed on how we are doing everything we can to ensure the well-being of our Club members, as well as the staff and volunteers who work at/with the Club.

We remain in close and regular contact with local, regional and state health officials and are monitoring the regular updates from the Federal government, the Centers for Disease Control (CDC), as well as the World Health Organization (WHO). Though the situation around the virus remains fluid, our goal is to continue our mission – to serve those kids who need us the most – both during and after the crisis affecting all of us now.

Here are some of the proactive steps we’ve quickly taken to continue to protect the well-being of our members, as well as to continue the important work of the Club:

  1. Established a weekly meeting schedule, made up of Club leadership and Board members, to monitor the situation, stay in close contact with local, regional and national officials and share insights to Club staff, parents and greater Milford community.
  2. Reinforced our Safety Standards with additional emphasis on virus prevention protocols across the organization and to our Club members’ families.
  3. Expanded opportunities for Club staff members to reduce their risk of contracting and spreading infections, and ensure they have the necessary support during these uncertain times.
  4. Defined what resources we can provide to our kids and families, whether the Club itself is open or closed.
  5. Utilized virtual resources developed by our staff to continue connection and engagement with Club members and their families remotely.
  6. Taken extra steps to ensure our Clubhouses are clean, sanitized and that those who enter are symptom-free.

The safety and well-being of our Club members remains our foremost priority, and we will continue to share updates with you as quickly and transparently as possible.

What Can You Do?

If you are interested in taking action to support the Club’s mission during this crisis, consider the following:

  • Continue to support us. We need you now more than ever! Our kids – and their parents – will need us throughout this crisis.
  • Continue to talk about the important work the Club does to your network and the greater community.
  • Like us on social media. Share, Click, Comment. https://www.facebook.com/svbgc/
  • Mail gift cards from local grocery stores to our office for distribution to families in need.
  • If you have any ideas or thoughts to help please contact our Development Director Cory Sullivan at csullivan@svbgc.org
  • If during this time you can help to support the club financially please visit https://svbgc.org/support-the-club/

Thank you for your continued support and care of Boys & Girls Clubs of Souhegan Valley.

Executive Director

Mike Goodwin
