where one is sheltered from elements or harm
The newly launched program from CASA First ‘Abrigo Advocates” provides any trauma-impacted or system-involved infant, child or youth from Santa Fe, Rio Arriba or Los Alamos Counties
with a highly trained and dedicated advocate.
Abrigo Advocates are volunteers who are matched with children and youth who have been impacted by trauma or are system-involved. Abrigos, through a consistent and supportive relationship, will help children and youth find the resources and services they need, assist with practical life functions, create community connections and more. Our goal is to meet our youth or child where they are and guide them accordingly.
Abrigo Advocate Volunteers
If you are 21 or older and want to ensure youths’ wellbeing and success, please reach out and learn how to be trained as an CASA First Abrigo Advocate.
