A grassroots movement to make a difference in the New Mexico community by providing educational development and quality of life assistance.
Los Ojos de la Familia, founded in December 2009, by local business professionals, is comprised of individual volunteers from around our community, of all different walks of life and socio-economic status, who have one common passion: the desire to give back to our local community.
Los Ojos de la Familia is organized and operated exclusively for charitable and educational purposes. Assistance provided by the organization includes, but is not limited to, grants, scholarships, financial support, and maintenance of individuals and families in need throughout our community.
100% of every penny which comes in to this charity, goes directly back into our community. There is NO overhead! We attempt to identify individuals through input provided by members of the community, members of the education system, and members of the organization—individuals who, without such assistance, would not be able to gain an education or trade, provide for the basic needs of their families, and become self sufficient contributors to the community. Financial need to stay within the educational system is the primary criteria for which support will be provided. However, secondary considerations will be given to families whose current financial circumstances fail to offer opportunities and encouragement to improve and excel within the community. The broader objective is to provide support, financial and otherwise, to individuals and families who have the potential to improve their lives, the lives of their children, and the strength of our community.
