Cuidando Los Niños
Albuquerque Public Schools
Albuquerque, NM
“Cuidando Los Niños will promote the healthy development of children experiencing homelessness through a combination of outdoor enrichment and family support. Cuidando’s Little Adventures project will provide play equipment and field trips to engage children in outdoor activities that grow their social skills, foster autonomy and resilience, promote strong cultural- and self-identity, and deepen their connection to nature. Meanwhile, case managers will connect parents to partner services that build their social and emotional intelligence.”
