About Us

The New Mexico Child Abuse Prevention Partnership (NM-CAPP) is a consortium of stakeholders throughout the state, each with their own mission relating to child abuse prevention coming together to eliminate child abuse. The individual strengths and programs of the member stakeholders are augmented by their affiliation with other like-minded organizations. The collaboration of NM-CAPP with these stakeholder organizations provides a structured, unified, diverse and comprehensive approach to the prevention of child abuse. 

The New Mexico Child Abuse Prevention Partnership (NM-CAPP) provides public awareness regarding child abuse through the use of public service announcements, statewide advertising campaigns and fundraising activities.
