100% Otero’s mission is to ensure that 100% of county residents have access to the ten vital services for surviving and thriving. We are promoting a culture of caring to heal and help our neighbors. We are working to strengthen systems of care to prevent adverse childhood experiences, social adversity and vulnerability to public health crises and economic disruptions.

Imagine 100% of our children 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 Otero 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.
