Step Up Parents was formed to offer financial assistance and support to relative caregivers in New Hampshire who have selflessly stepped up to care for children whose biological parents struggle with substance use disorder. In addition to taking on parenting again later in life, these kinship caregivers have suffered the devastating effects of addiction with their own child or relative. Sadly, in many instances, this has lead to his/her premature death.
 
Besides the enormous commitment and responsibility, the most immediate need is often financial. In most cases, available state and federal aid is not enough, especially for those grandparents and relatives who have taken in these children outside the framework of the foster care system. Studies show that children who stay with a grandparent or relative have much better emotional and behavioral outcomes than those placed in foster care or with a non-family member. Step Up Parents hopes to fill in the gaps for those caregivers. By supporting the families caring for and raising these “opioid orphans,” we can help break the cycle.
