STRATEGIES

Building State and Local Collaboratives

In summer 2014, FosterEd committed to working in New Mexico and formed a state leadership team comprised of senior staff from ChildrenYFD, PED, State Supreme Court, and the Governor’s Office. In spring 2015, the leadership team advised selecting Lea County. FosterEd began serving students in Lea County in March 2016.

FosterEd’s work in Lea County is supported by our amazing Local Planning Team, which consists of representatives from Lovington Municipal Schools, Hobbs Municipal Schools, the Fifth Judicial District Court, Lea County CYFD Protective Services, and Lea County CYFD Juvenile Probation Department.
