Programs and results

What we aim to solve

SOURCE: Self-reported by organization

Due to our facility closure during 2020-2021 Covid Pandemic, our 2022 goals are similar to those of 2020. Acquiring a permanent facility, building our membership and providing more outreach through our Veteran/Family Collaborative. We are actively working with Chambers of Commerce, Tourism Boards and forming alliances with local service organizations and businesses in New Mexico and elsewhere to maximize our impact.

Charting impact

Four powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

We:

*Honor Military Families *Preserve their Legacies *Share their Stories *Educate the Public

Having undergone the Collections Assessment in 2018 and receiving a NEH grant for collections preservation, in 2022, we hope to raise funding and support to acquire a bigger, modern building so we can better preserve our collections, strengthen our community, and serve as a resource to those who wish to learn more about military family history. We are the symbolic home for those nostalgic for military family life, and for those who wish to learn more.

We plan to continue to develop our programs, create imaginative exhibits and publish anthologies which invite further community involvement and thoughtful dialog. Between 2020-2022, we produced SHOUT! the play which was performed in Rhode Island and streamed on-line nation-wide. In 2022, SHOUT! will be performed live in Albuquerque, NM, and its curriculum will be used as EEO training in Virginia. We will produce Still SHOUTing a second anthology and are planning an anthology and exhibit "Host Nation Hospitality." Additionally, the museum's "E Pluribus Unum: GRAICE Under Pressure" publication will be released mid April-early May 2022.

In 2022, we plan to continue our goals of reorganizing and developing our long-term plans.

We have partnered with national, state and local individuals and organizations to collaborate on diverse projects. We are rebuilding our board and creating robust action teams. Our strategy is to do quality work, to continuously improve our processes, and this year, raise enough capital for our permanent location.

As a small non-profit with an impressive track record, and an affinity for collaborating, we feel confident that we will achieve our goals for 2022.

We know we cannot do this without the continued support of the many people who have faith in us and our mission, and without greater national visibility.

We continuously do "voice of the customer" surveys to see what else we could be doing to improve our museum and engage with our visitors--both online and in person. We engaged with a consultant in 2020 for an outside perspective of our organization. That report is invaluable as we move forward, setting our short-term and long-term goals.

Thanks to the CARES/ARP programs, we weathered the worst of the pandemic. We received several arts and humanities grants for past and future projects. We published two anthologies which are selling quite well at online retailers, which provide small but steady income for the museum. Received in 2020 --Award of Excellence-American Association for State and Local History. Have been nominated for two additional awards for 2022.
Have begun to build and expand our board with subject-matter experts and industry professionals.
