Somos Amigos' mission is to bring people together to improve the health, safety and security of low-income homeowners in Northern New Mexico through performing minor repairs to their homes at no cost to them.
Somos Amigos of NNM was brought into being by a group of dedicated people to serve low to no income residents of the Espanola Valley by making health and safety related home repairs to their residences. Our Executive Director, David Canfield, handles the administration of the program and we use skilled volunteer labor to do the work. We aim to bring the people of Los Alamos and Espanola Valley together to address the home repair needs of the "poorest of the poor" in the valley, such as building ramps for disabled access, repairing floors, plumbing, water damage, broken windows, low threshold tub installation and so on. We work through various referring agencies in the area to find clients, including United Way of Northern New Mexico, Self Help, Habitat for Humanity, Amigos de Valle and others. We serve mainly elderly and disabled people, and help them stay in their own homes instead of having to move to an institution, giving them more independence, security and confidence. We are entirely grant and donation funded.
