The Grant County Community Foundation and United Way of Southwest New Mexico, in partnership with Freeport McMoRan and the Southwest Council of Governments, are co-hosting a regional conversation between non-profits and community members in Grant, Hidalgo, Luna and Catron counties on Friday November 8 at the Global Resource Center at Western New Mexico University.
Together we will explore new pathways for understanding how to build and sustain community organizations in southwest New Mexico including strategies for making sure everyone is counted in the 2020 Census. The census will determine the funding our community will receive for the next ten years for community services such as schools for our children, quality healthcare, roads, emergency preparedness. Participants will also gain new insights about the importance of sustaining community resilience while creating more effective service systems.
All community members and nonprofits are encouraged to join us. If you are interested, please complete the registration form. We do require a registration form from everyone who wishes to attend.
