United Way event to identify critical issues

RIO RANCHO, N.M. — United Way of Central New Mexico’s Sandoval County Committee will host a “Provider Summit” on Thursday to bring together health and human services organizations to identify critical issues in both rural and urban Sandoval County.

The event will provide a platform for agencies, government and others to work collaboratively to identify barriers and build solutions for Sandoval County.

The meeting will be held 9-11:30 a.m. at the Sandoval County Fire Station 21.

Sandoval County Fire Chief James Maxon and Beth Miller, director of Outreach & Strategic Initiatives at UNM West, are committee co-chairs.

The Sandoval County Committee is part of a larger Rural Counties Committee effort of UWCNM. United Way of Central New Mexico represents four counties (Bernalillo, Sandoval, Torrance and Valencia), each with its own unique needs and resources.

In order to better understand the changing issues, developments and opportunities of the region, the UWCNM Rural Counties Committee was formed.

Many issues in rural communities, such as transportation or limited resources, are included in evaluations of UWCNM’s work for the entire four-county area.

In addition to providing much-needed information about the entire service area, committee members also provide information vital to the work of the UWCNM Community Fund, Mission: Graduate and other UWCNM programs.
