Get Involved

As New Mexicans, it's up to all of us to make the lives of our children better. Every mother, father, young person, and community member has the ability to be there for the children of New Mexico. What can you do to help? Donate your time to an organization that needs volunteers, assemble a backpack for a foster child, offer support to your neighbors and families in your community, and report child abuse when you see it.
