Community Action Agency of Southern New Mexico

CAA is a 58-year-old New Mexico nonprofit that provides resources and programming to people facing adversity. The goal is to help increase their resiliency and overall family wellbeing. We do this through programs that build on family strengths, self-empowerment, and resilience. Among the many services CAA provides are youth entrepreneurship and development, nutrition programs for children, family financial programs, housing stability, and empowerment and advocacy. Last year, we served over 14,000 families.

Charting impact

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

Accessible Services and Resources: Reduce barriers for clients to access resources in their communities.
Diversify Funding: Create a diversified funding portfolio to ensure sustainability for current and new initiatives.
Messaging: Communicate consistent, tailored messaging that resonates with a variety of stakeholders.
Partner with Local, Trusted Groups: Cultivate and advance meaningful collaborations built on trust to address community challenges and leverage services.
Programs: Deliver a more holistic, multi-generational service model in order to help families thrive.
Stakeholder Advocacy: Advocate for those we serve to build support for CAASNM’s mission and strengthen our communities.

CAASNM advocates for low-income individuals and families in the effort to reduce the incidence of poverty and assist them towards sustained health and self-sufficiency. As a result, communities are revitalized, families are strengthened, and health of communities is improved.
