CHC Has Supported Projects for
Children and Families Around the World
Promote Health, Literacy, and Hope of a Better Life
Frances C. Richmond Middle School
Hanover, New Hampshire
2000 - 2012
Horan retired in June of 2012 after teaching English
at the Richmond Middle School for 26 years. She also led students
in this service elective for thirteen years. These pages show
the power of reaching out to children around the world and finding
ways to make a difference in the lives of so many recipients as
well as the student givers and the Richmond community.
Helping Children was a service group that worked each
year since 2000 to raise money for children in impoverished
areas of the world. Courtney Haynes, in the middle of
the first group pictured to the right, was its inspiration.
Courtney found a staff leader, Jody Horan, gathered five
friends to form the first group, and the search began
for children around the world where CHC could help. The
flags above show the twenty-five countries where our funds
have improved the lives of children in very direct ways
over the past thirteen years.
Helping Children has always looked for areas through someone
connected with the Richmond community, so that our funds
can be personally delivered for the project selected.
This has made CHC contributions more relevant to the group
and to the broader community as well as the recipients.
We have also tried to select concrete projects to support
that would have a lasting impact. Jody Horan was granted
a service sabbatical in 2000-2001, generously sponsored
by the Dresden School District, and she has also received
several district enrichment grants over the years. These
have enabled her to personally deliver books, CHC funds,
and her teaching skills around the world, noted in the
narratives, as well as sending our contributions with
