About Us

New Mexico Association of Community Partners (NMACP) is a statewide membership association for Community Action Agencies in New Mexico. We strive to elevate Community Action Agencies in New Mexico through training, technical assistance, fundraising, collaborating and building strong, community-based partnerships.

Our Executive Director is Carolyn VanderGiesen ( and our Communications Specialist is Laura Bruzzese (

New Mexico CAAs work with a network of community partners to provide opportunities to families and to improve the living conditions in low-income communities.

Each Community Action Agency offers its own menu of services and programs tailored to meet local needs. NMACP is a forum for New Mexico CAAs to work together on issues that concern low-income New Mexicans.

There are six Community Action Agencies in New Mexico and they serve all 33 counties of the state. All six agencies are private non-profits.   Each year our agencies assist over 150,000 New Mexico residents.

Please contact your local agency for more information.
