About Us

The Southwest Institute for Family & Child Advocacy is housed in New Mexico State University’s School of Social Work. In partnership with New Mexico’s Children Youth and Families Department (CYFD) this project is funded through the Title IV-E Child Welfare Training Program of the Social Security Act and other funding sources. The mission of our project is to promote the safety, permanence, stability, and well-being of children, youth and families in their communities through the development, implementation and evaluation of trainings, workshops, and conferences for Child Welfare Professionals and Resource Families throughout the State of New Mexico.

Guided by the principles of the strengths perspective, empowerment, cultural competence, and social and economic justice, the School of Social Work prepares students for ethical, evidence-informed social work practice. The School of Social Work is committed to serving people through teaching, outreach, leadership, research, service, and the development of knowledge, skills, and values that promote the profession’s ability to respond to individuals, families, groups, communities and organizations in the culturally diverse environment of the Southwest.

New Mexico State University is the state’s land-grant university, serving the educational needs of New Mexico’s diverse population through comprehensive programs of education, research, extension education, and public service.
