Northeast New Mexico


The event was a huge success and we look forward to the next.

June 8, 2022 – 10am to 2pm

The 100% New Mexico initiative is continuing to grow across our counties, up from its initial three counties in 2019 to fifteen counties in 2022. The Anna, Age Eight Institute, sponsors of the initiative, is developing five “100% Regions” within the state to promote collaboration, synergy and alignment of services and resources. We are sponsoring a Regional Summit to support a conversation across the counties of northeast New Mexico.

We believe that adverse childhood experiences, family trauma and disruptions to healthcare, school, social services and jobs can be addressed with a strong city, county and regional response. We have seen first hand that when there is a public health or public safety challenge, like a pandemic or fire, regional collaboration and communication can address many concerns among all residents.

This is the Anna, Age Eight Institute’s first regional summit to explore how a regional process could support each of the county-based 100% New Mexico initiatives across northeast New Mexico in the counties of San Miguel, Rio Arriba, Santa Fe, Taos, Mora, Los Alamos, Harding, Union, Colfax, and Guadalupe. In our quest to work in alignment with existing structures, our five 100% regions were designed to mirror those of the NM Department of Health.

What are the regions?
