United Way of Central New Mexico focuses on increasing school graduation rates and improving overall family stability. Kids can’t do well in school when they are dealing with hunger, homelessness or neglect. We are connecting them with the resources they need to succeed. To do this, we’re collaborating with many community partners, providing grant funding and advocating for change on many different levels in order to bring about long-term, systemic change.
Hear about the importance of this work from two of our community leaders -- District Attorney Raúl Torrez and Albuquerque Public Schools Superintendent Raquel Reedy.
