All of us at New Mexico Kids Matter believe that every child deserves to be raised in a home surrounded by their own families, cultures, and traditions. At times, circumstances make staying or returning home unsafe for some children. Our Family Finding Department, in collaboration with Bernalillo County Child, Youth, and Family (CYFD), work together in the search and discovery of unknown or estranged relatives, giving a young person within the foster care system a greater chance of being raised with a safe and loving family member.
CASA is not your typical volunteer role.
That’s okay. We're not looking for typical volunteers.
