Join New Mexico Funders for the HEAL Fund Convening

Join New Mexico Funders for the Virtual HEAL Fund Convening
Wednesday, October 27, 2021 10 am – 12 noon MST Open to all; there is no charge to attend  

Early in 2021, a small group of funders came together and formed the HEAL Fund (Healthy Entry for Asylee Lives). Housed at the New Mexico Foundation, the Fund supports New Mexico non-profits by providing vital flexible assistance to support vulnerable children, families, and adults lawfully seeking asylum in the United States. To date, the Fund has been supported by local partners and made grants to agencies addressing critical needs.  

This convening will be an opportunity to learn more about:
The needs of asylees in New Mexico
The support being provided by nonprofit partners
Ways to engage in this community effort
