“To improve the safety, permanency, and well-being of children and families in NM Children’s Court by developing innovative initiative through court, agency, and stakeholder collaboration.”
The Chief Justice of the NM Supreme Court appoints a broadly based Commission to coordinate the Court Improvement Project (CIP). This Commission includes judges, legislators, representatives from Protective Services and Juvenile Justice (Children, Youth and Families Department), attorneys, child and family advocates, educators, service providers, foster parents, youth, and other interested parties. The participants in the CCIC form a strong coalition collaborating to improve New Mexico’s child welfare and juvenile justice systems.
We envision a seamless system of collaboration in order to provide for the safety and health of all children and families in New Mexico.
