UWNNM Invites Everyone To Meet 2016 Community Action Funded Partners June 30

UWNNM News:

The United Way of Northern New Mexico invites the community to meet the 2016 Community Action Funded Partners June 30.

​Come chat with some of the nonprofits tackling Northern New Mexico’s most critical challenges. These nonprofits are able to do what they do because of the community’s generosity and they can’t wait to show community members the difference it is making.

One’s time can be just as valuable as their financial investments. Visit these nonprofits to identify ways to get involved through volunteer opportunities and to use skills to help these nonprofits impact lives in this community.

The event is Thursday, June 30 and community members can stop in anytime between 8-11 a.m. at the Los Alamos Research Park (4200 West Jemez Road), 2nd Floor where burritos and coffee will be served.

Here are a few nonprofits attending:

Barrios Unidos 

  • Start up rehabilitation center in Chimayo. This is the first rehab center in the part of the state that is most affected by substance abuse

Family YMCA 

  • Scholarship programs that help families who otherwise could not afford to give their children summer enrichment and after school activities and supervision.

Juvenile Justice Advisory Board

  • Youth Resource Advocates are in place in our schools to help guide families to resources they need from basic needs to behavioral health services.

Los Alamos Retirement Community

  • Music program that is helping those who are suffering from dementia and Alzheimers

And many more!
