My Community NM

Geographic Area Served

Albuquerque, New Mexico State-wide
Project Description
My Community NM is the State's only bilingual, on-line resource directory. The project, which began in 2002, has been developed through an ongoing partnership with community leaders from La Comunidad Habla. La Comunidad Habla was recently featured in an important research paper sponsored by the Federal Communication Commission—Broadband Adoption In Low-Income Communities. Unlike most other resource directories that focus on particular populations and specific service needs, My NM includes health, social service, legal, transportation, recreation, and advocacy resources for all high-risk populations. We are a collaborative project that is supported by a growing list of community partners who are passionate about providing up to date resource information to their constituencies.

Partners can use the My Community NM database to prepare print manuals. For instance the 2008 version of the Salud Manual includes resources for Bernalillo and Sandoval Counties; 6000 copies of the manual were sold-out in six months.

Our mission is to provide New Mexicans with a comprehensive, partner-based, up-to-date, cost-effective, online and print inventory of community resources and information, in order to:

Improve awareness and accessibility of existing services
Build knowledge and advocacy skills
Facilitate referrals, networking, and collaboration
Document service barriers and gaps
