New Mexico Kids Matter is part of a complex system created to protect our children. When the state steps in to protect a child’s safety because the people responsible for protecting them have not, a judge appoints a trained volunteer to make independent and informed recommendations to the court. That volunteer is a CASA-Court Appointed Advocate.
New Mexico Kids Matter is the only volunteer advocacy group working in the court system that provides a caring, consistent adult focused on the well-being of a single child in foster care.
The chaos of being a child turns into a
storm when a child is abused or neglected.
