December, 2013 - Important Year-End Events and Grant Awards

We want to personally acknowledge all the willing volunteers and purposeful grantors who assisted the agency in the past year carrying tables, painting faces, and meeting with us to find creative ways to enable Las Cumbres to flourish and grow and, more importantly, to reach even more families in need in northern New Mexico.

Three exceptional events brought community together in September, October, and November. The First Annual Northern New Mexico Family Day was attended by nearly 1500 children and family members thanks to the hard work of the agency’s Fatherhood Program. The event coincided with National Family Day, a day for encouraging parental engagement with their families. The playful outdoors venue, held on the Española Plaza, hosted information booths, a rock climbing wall (with the generosity of the National Guard), free food and drinks, and a blood drive by United Blood Services. Additionally, the event was generously supported by the Española Mayor and City Council members.

In October the Las Cumbres’ Grandparents Program gathered one hundred plus participants for “Otra Vez: Grandparents Raising Grandchildren” 2013 Conference at Northern New Mexico College in Española. The conference, co-sponsored by Con Alma Foundation, Northern New Mexico Health Grants Group and the Frost Foundation, featured panel discussions on guardianship; safe habits for safe homes and safe children; adverse childhood experiences, as well as focus groups on legal issues and concerns, health, finances, and education.

November closed the year with the First Annual Northern New Mexico Child Trauma Conference, “An Offering of Hands” on the El Rito campus of Northern New Mexico College. Programming for the two day conference was designed to develop and build stronger trauma-informed systems of care for children age birth to 6. Topics included historical trauma and unresolved grief; dance and movement therapies for young children; and self-care for practitioners who work with clients with trauma.

Grants received in the year included, but were not limited to, generous awards from the Brindle Foundation, the City of Santa Fe Children & Youth Commission, CHRISTUS St. Vincent Regional Medical Center, McCune Charitable Foundation, New Mexico Children Youth and Families Department, New Mexico Community Foundation, Santa Fe Civitan Club, Santa Fe Community Foundation, Santa Fe Rotary Club Foundation, United Way of Northern New Mexico, Doris Goodwin Walbridge Foundation, and Zell Family Foundation. Many private individuals also contributed with in-kind and monetary donations as well as gifts of their time.

Thank you one and all!
