Letter from the Executive Director

Children are the most in need of the help that Legal Aid provides. New Mexico has one of the highest child poverty rates of any state in the nation.

Together, we can do something about that. Stabilizing families, getting them back on their feet after a calamity has set them back, is one of the most important things we can do to create a healthier and more secure society for today and the future.

It really comes down to the choices we make. Your support for Legal Aid at every level makes a difference – thank you.
