About Impact Monadnock

Impact Monadnock is the signature impact initiative of Monadnock United Way.

Impact Monadnock targets all children in the Monadnock Region, from birth to age five, and their families. It was created in response to research indicating that early childhood development is one of the most critical factors determining the future of all citizens of the Monadnock Region — because what happens to our youngest residents will have a powerful impact on our community’s future success and prosperity.

Using the Collective Impact model, Impact Monadnock was originally supported by two organizational “Backbones” — Monadnock United Way and Spark NH, the governor-appointed early childhood advisory council created to promote a comprehensive system of early childhood programs and services in the state — from its inception in 2015 through July 2017.
 
In July 2017, Impact Monadnock merged with Monadnock United Way (MUW), becoming MUW’s signature early childhood impact initiative.
