The Crisis Center of Northern New Mexico

As a Northern New Mexico organization committed to raising public awareness about women’s striving to overcome abuse we are always eager to learn of local organizations making an impact in the community.  In November, Board Member Lynette Montoya and I visited The Crisis Center of Northern New Mexico in Espanola, New Mexico.

The mission of The Crisis Center is “to educate people to make positive choices that help build and sustain healthy families and a violence free environment.”  They offer a variety of programs: an emergency shelter that operates 24/7; individual and group therapy; and educational programs.  Executive Director. Carol Merriweather suggested we meet with Ramon Garcia, their outreach coordinator.

We were very impressed with Ramon’s enthusiasm and dedication to his work.  In particular he described how The Crisis Center has partnered with the Espanola School District distributing DVD’s advocating for a violence free home.  We look forward to keeping in touch with Ramon and his work with The Crisis Center.
