Imagine every child grows up with joy, health, safety and stability within a caring family. Imagine a time when every student is empowered to succeed in school. Imagine a tomorrow when every family lives in a community with the resources to care for one another.
Imagine 100% of our children thrive.
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 Chaves County and 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.
The 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.
