Whether your child has special needs or needs some special encouragement, the Richie McFarland Children’s Center has five decades of experience replacing questions with answers, fear with hope, and challenges with opportunities.

A message from RMCC Executive Director, Peggy Small-Porter

Dear Parents, Caregivers and Faithful RMCC Supporters,

We sincerely hope that you are all staying healthy and safe during this unprecedented and difficult time. Please know RMCC’s commitment to each one of the children and families we serve has not changed.

While our building is closed, our therapists and educators remain devoted to each child they work with and continue to deliver needed services through Telehealth; that is, connecting with and guiding each family, using phone calls and video conferencing.

The Richie McFarland Children’s Center continues to keep the health and safety of the families we work with, as well as that of our staff, as our highest priority.  In that spirit, RMCC will adhere to the Executive Orders issued by Governor Sununu.  The Stay at Home directive and the mandatory school closures will be followed. Further, RMCC's annual June golf tournament, as well as our annual meeting gathering, have been canceled.

RMCC Board and staff are working hard to plan ahead and be proactive despite the uncertainty we are currently facing.  We have persevered through difficult times before and know that, once the world overcomes this monumental challenge, our communities will thrive again.

We are here for you and encourage you to reach out with any questions or concerns.

  • For general questions related to our response to Covid19, please call our Executive Director, Peggy Small-Porter, at 603-770-0749.
  • For specific therapeutic questions concerning a child in care, please reach out to your direct service provider.
  • For general inquiries regarding a developmental concern with your child, please reach out to our Program Director/Coordinator, Sue Ford, at 603-658-6235.

Together, with continued patience and compassion for one another, we will get through this.
