Growing Up New Mexico: The Early Childhood Partnership

Over the past two decades we have been focused on early childhood education and policy as United Way of Santa Fe County and New Mexico Early Childhood Development Partnership.

In January 2021, we merged to become Growing Up New Mexico: The Early Childhood Partnership. Our new name represents our work to shorten the distance between policy and action and will fully align our work in New Mexico.

We will have a new name, but our organizational mission, vision, focus, and work will remain just as they are. Our Board of Directors and staff worked diligently to discover a name that truly encompasses our identity, and we have achieved that in Growing Up New Mexico.

By changing our name, we are signaling our commitment to New Mexico’s children and the adults in their lives. We’ve directed family programs and created the public awareness and political will for investment in early childhood education and care in New Mexico for many years.  We will continue to do the same important work, just with a new name.

New name. Same great work. Same great people.
