SOLUTIONS

LEADING THE NATION IN INNOVATION

The 100% New Mexico initiative is a first in the nation, a statewide strategy to identify barriers to ten vital family services and create access for all residents. The initiative is driven by county stakeholders, designed to achieve the goals of preventing adverse childhood experiences (ACEs), family trauma and social adversity. By ensuring ten vital services for surviving and thriving, each county can also increase student achievement and provide families with the services to endure public health crises and economic disruptions.

OUR 100% COUNTIES

The 100% New Mexico website provides you with an overview of how the initiative supports counties across New Mexico. Our goal is to create within each county a public and private sector partnership including city and county government, the schools, higher education and health councils, to ensure the vital services for surviving and thriving for 100% of residents.

EVERY CHILD

TO A FUTURE WHERE 100% THRIVE

A RESPONSE

Our children are totally dependent on their parents, some thrive while others endure adversity, abuse and trauma. Our students are enrolled in schools preparing for the future, or at risk for falling behind. Our communities may be well-resourced and empowering, while others lack the services to survive and thrive. Across all New Mexico, we live in different communities, each with their own histories, challenges and opportunities.

We can solve the challenges our children and families face.

A COMMITMENT

100% New Mexico initiative is a bold countywide strategy designed to ensure 100% of our residents are protected. Our goal is to create trauma-free childhoods that lead to school achievement, community engagement, job readiness and a self-sufficient and healthy life in New Mexico.

We’re committed to ensuring that the 10 services shown to empower children, students and families are accessible to all.

Medical and dental care
Behavioral health care
Housing security programs
