New Mexico Asian Family Center
Our mission is to provide culturally sensitive programs and services creating a Pan-Asian community that advocates for and supports itself. Currently, we are the only organization in New Mexico providing culturally tailored programs and services to local Asian communities. Examples of programs and services include case management, counseling, and legal consultation and representation for victims of crime, specifically domestic violence and sexual assault victims, in addition to navigation support for immigrant families; multi-generational family programming and ESL prep; voter registration and engagement; problem gambling treatment and prevention; and anti-tobacco education. In 2015, we supported over 1,000 individuals in 8 different counties across NM. Individuals receiving direct services represented 20 different ethnicities and obtained services in 10 different languages. Nearly 20% of those seeking help were provided limited services through volunteers because of funding shortages. This is an example of how your donations will continue to help our community.
