Mission Statement

NMCAN partners with young people to build community, promote equity, and lead change.

Description

Since 1990, NMCAN has been leveraging community partnerships and volunteerism to improve children and youth’s experiences in foster care. Today, we have grown to authentically engage young people impacted by the foster care and/or juvenile justice systems to improve their transition to adulthood. Together, we work to: 1) Reduce systemic barriers that negatively impact their lives; 2) Help them learn how to build positive community networks and strengthen their sense of belonging; and 3) Access tools to achieve goals related to education, employment, health, housing, and personal finance.
