Well-being is the state of being comfortable, healthy, and happy — and it is vital to strong communities. Nusenda is dedicated to improving the well-being of all New Mexicans, which means we’re working hard to address the critical needs of our community members, such as: access to reliable transportation, housing, basic needs for health and safety, meaningful and stable work, lifelong learning, and more. By partnering with nonprofit organizations, assistance programs, and philanthropic initiatives, we’ve mobilized emergency resources, helped create jobs, and ensured our most vulnerable community members don’t fall through the cracks.
Well-being initiatives can help individuals:
- Increase their income and assets.
- Provide valuable resources and collaborative efforts that offer holistic support for them and their families.
- Gain additional life skills to start a business, further an education, or offer behavioral health services and/or counseling.
