As a resident of Keene Housing, Housing Choice voucher holders or residents of select Southwestern Community Services properties (CitySide, Keene Highlands, Swanzey Township or Woodcrest) your child can participate in many activities in the community at no cost to you. All you have to do is contact us, and we’ll get the ball rolling.

To the right is a list of some of our partners who offer activities your child can participate in. To find out more about the great opportunities we have available for your child give us a call at 603-352-0109 or email us at [email protected]. You can also stop by the Kids Collaborative office at Forest View Apartments, 5 Harmony Lane. We’d love to see you and talk about all the great things we have available for your child.

Join our Facebook group! We post daily Monday-Friday about the free programs we provide along with events happening in our community.

Do you know of a program you would love to have your child participate that you don’t see here? Let us know. We would love to connect with them.
