We were so excited to be a part of the first annual Foster Parent and Advocate Day at the New Mexico Legislature on March 1! CASA Partners 4NMKIDS joined the New Mexico Child First Network, CASA First of Santa Fe, New Mexico Kids Matter, along with other CYFD and other child welfare organizations to celebrate our amazing children in foster care and their equally amazing foster families. The children and their families were recognized on the Senate floor for their hard work. There was a pizza party in the Rotunda while we heard remarks from Mariana Padilla, the Children's Cabinet Secretary, Brian Blalock, our new CYFD Secretary, and Maralyn Beck, the foster mom and founder of Child First Network. This was a wonderful day for our CASAs and staff as we joined with all of these other groups to celebrate the successes for these amazing children and their foster families and together look to the future of our advocacy work.
See how we’re making a difference in our community.
