A huge THANK YOU goes out to everyone who attended!

Tuesday, March 19, 2024, 8am to 3pm

The 100% Rio Arriba summit is bringing together community leaders and community members to discuss how Rio Arriba County coordinates resources to make sure that 100% of the residents in our county have access to the vital services needed to survive and thrive.

  • Overview of 100% New Mexico initiative
  • Building partnerships “100% means everyone’s in and no one is out.”
  • Fully resourcing our Schools
  • 100% Rio Arriba – Challenges and Opportunities
  • Building a Stronger Community
  • Exploring the 100% Family Center: One Stop Hub model.
  • How you can get involved – 100% Action Teams

We know the challenges and how to fix them. All that’s lacking is the buy-in to make the health, safety, and education of 100% of Rio Arriba’s and all of New Mexico’s children and students the number one priority.


The 100% Rio Arriba initiative identifies the adverse social determinants of health in the form of families’ lack of access to vital services. These services, such as medical and behavioral healthcare, determine our quality of life with the capacity to prevent adverse childhood experiences, trauma, substance use disorders, and poor school achievement leading to a lack of job readiness. By guaranteeing services, we go upstream to prevent family involvement with child welfare, law enforcement, the courts, and emergency room care.
