Section for Child Safety and Well-Being


At UNM, we envision a community where all children are physically and emotionally healthy, and untouched by violence.

Our mission is to ensure that children with histories of trauma or neglect receive compassionate integrated care, and to strengthen families through collaboration with community partners. We also strive to model and disseminate best practices, so that all New Mexican children have access to expert care.
