We invite you to join us in our mission to achieve a stronger community by uniting our collective power to create positive, meaningful change, because advancing the common good is less about helping one person at a time and more about changing systems to help us all – we invite you to join us and LIVE UNITED.
The United Way of Southwest New Mexico is a local, independent, volunteer driven, non-profit organization, bringing people and resources together to build stronger communities in and around Dona Ana, Grant, Sierra, Luna, and Hidalgo counties.
Since 1957 we have been making a difference in our community and building better lives throughout Southwest New Mexico.
Through our Community Investment Committee we partner with community volunteers in prioritizing needs, consolidating resources, and funding programs that provide effective support and solutions in three key areas: education, health and income.
Over the years, the united efforts of United Way partner programs and community members have helped improve the lives of many of those most vulnerable in our community.
The United Way of Southwest New Mexico supports 58 agencies that address the building blocks of a better life – improved education, better health and economic self-sufficiency.
Remove any one of these building blocks and the other two topple.
The office currently consists of a small dedicated staff and is overseen by a nine-member volunteer Board of Directors.Read More
