They Made It Easy for Us to Do Good Things

In the news business (*puffs cigar, leans back in chair, puts feet on desk), I often find myself saying things like, "Seems like there should be some kind of group that could ... ". Then, months later, I'll find out there's a nonprofit in the state that fills exactly that need.
The directory delivers contact information, website links, region and areas served, budget, staff size, etc.
"An estimated 6,000 nonprofits in New Mexico are conducting essential work," writes the center in a news release. These groups build "health care clinics, food banks, domestic violence shelters, job skill training programs, affordable housing, childcare, youth mentoring programs, after-school programs, arts and cultural centers, community gardens, and animal rescue and adoption sites."
The online list should make it easier for people to volunteer or make donations. You can use the search tool to find nonprofits that work in your corner of the state or on issues you care about. Plus, the center says, the nonprofits can find each other and collaborate.
