The agency’s Grandparents Raising Grandchildren program has once again been honored for its exceptional work, receiving a surprise Chispa award from the New Mexico Community Foundation (NMCF) in December. Ten organizations each received an award and a $7,000 unrestricted grant. Chispa, which means, “spark” in Spanish, are awards that are given annually to nonprofits that shine a light in the communities they serve. Nominations were made by community partners from across the state, and final decisions made by a volunteer selection committee. None of the recipients knew their organization had been selected until the day they were presented with the award and grant. Pictured are representatives of New Mexico Community Foundation and Las Cumbres staff.

Half of the organizations selected specifically support issues directly relating to women and girls, aligning with NewMexicoWomen.Org, NMCF’s initiative to advance opportunities for women and girls in the state. The other half of the organizations selected serve rural and underserved communities of New Mexico. Las Cumbres’ Grandparents Raising Grandchildren Program, in Rio Arriba, provides support groups, resources, and discussion topics to foster growth and well-being of grandparents who are primary caregivers for children in Rio Arriba County.

Other Chispa award winners, that Las Cumbres is honored to be among included, Mujeres de Adelante Women’s Cooperative; Hands Across Cultures Corp.; Domestic Violence Resource Center; Friends of the Healing House; NM Farmers’ Marketing Association; Brave Girls – Leadership Institute at Santa Fe Indian School; Northern Youth Project; Volunteer Center of Grant County; and Women Veterans of NM.
