Community Action Agency of Southern New Mexico (CAASNM) has been working nearly five decades to lift Southern New Mexicans out of poverty through high-impact programs that build self-reliance. Our mission is building self-reliance for low-income New Mexicans by connecting our community to high-impact programs that encourage family wellness, empower families and bridge resources.  One of the agency’s strengths is its ability to offer an innovative and unique scope of services to help people out of poverty. Last year, we reached over 8,500 families and 28,000 individuals.


Our vision is to create a community where opportunity exists for all to become self-sufficient.
