We need your support
April 18, 2016

Please help us make this year's wellness program for domestic violence survivors possible! Thank you so much for your generosity and kindness.  See more

THE STORY:

New Mexico is the poorest state in the US and ranks third in domestic violence. The Nest, a domestic violence shelter in Ruidoso, NM, is always full and often the only alternative to homelessness for low-income women and children who seek refuge.

Your support will enable the New Mexico Alliance for Children to implement a year-long “Wellness through the Arts” program that women and children at the Nest are desperately in need of.

Children staying at the shelter are emotionally traumatized, anxious, and fearful, while their mothers are often depressed and doubtful of their parenting abilities. The Nest currently provides basic counselling and employment services for the women, but without structured daily routines for women and children, there is little to ensure their physical and emotional health during their stay and beyond.

With your support, the NMAC will be able to implement a “Wellness through the Arts” program that will provide a variety of arts-based stress reduction activities, including fitness and movement classes, dance, journaling, nutritional guidance, “cooking with kids” classes, trauma-informed art and music therapies, and songwriting and musical performances by visiting artists for 150 women and children this year. For this at-risk community, this program will be life-changing, providing survivors with emotional healing that is vital to their future well-being.

About NMAC:

The New Mexico Alliance for Children (NMAC), a registered 501(c)(3) non-profit, has been offering creative health and arts-based programming for disadvantaged children and their families since 2002. It has received awards from the State of New Mexico Child, Youth, and Families Services Department; the New Mexico Collaboration to End Hunger; and the Region IX Educational Cooperative, which serves nine school districts in south central New Mexico. www.nmhealthykids.org

Note: Photos on this page are from past NMAC projects. None of the photos are from the Nest, as the shelter has a strict policy against photographing its residents, many of whom are literally hiding out and only just beginning their road to recovery
