The mission of NewMexicoWomen.Org (NMW.O) is to advance opportunities for self-identified women and girls so that they can lead healthy, self-sufficient, and empowered lives. The strategic focus of NMW.O is gender justice and healing.
We produce research that draws public attention to the issues impacting self-identified women and girls of color in order to influence policy and philanthropy, and support community organizations with data relevant to their work. Our grantmaking areas are gender justice and healing, adolescent girls of color, healthy masculinities, and healing and self-care. We prioritize organizations led by or serving self-identified women and girls of color, transgender and gender non-conforming folks, and immigrant, low-income, and rural communities.
We are committed to educating and learning with donors about the intersectional impacts of racial injustice, gender inequity, and historical trauma. We have offered trainings around gender justice and anti-racism to community partners. Further, as part of the statewide NM Healthy Masculinities Collaborative, we are addressing patriarchy and toxic masculinity with our healthy masculinities toolkit.
The Santa Fe Community Foundation invited its community partners to submit stories related to its October topic of New Mexico Women & Girls.

Las Cumbres Community Services

We added a therapeutic preschool – Conjunto - in the Española Valley in 1979. Since then, it has expanded its services for children, adults, and families in order to meet our state’s changing needs, with more than twenty programs in place today.
