One of the goals of the New Mexico Center on Law and Poverty is to be a resource to direct service providers, other advocates, and the community in which we work. We hope to empower other organizations with accurate and up-to-date information so they can better serve their clients. We also work to ensure that low-income families are better informed, have more tools at their disposal, and have increased capacity to assert their rights.
