New Mexico Family Advocacy Program

New Mexico Family Advocacy Program

NM Family Advocacy Program
Interactive Training Series

NMFAP ECHO is a knowledge-sharing platform for judges, court staff, parent and children's attorneys, social workers, child welfare agencies, community service providers, educators, and parents and families. 

The platform builds from the experience of the New Mexico Family Advocacy Program, which provides parents in child welfare cases an interdisciplinary team of lawyers, social workers, and parent mentors so that families are given the proper advocacy and support for reunification or other preferred outcomes.

The goal of NMFAP ECHO is to create a virtual community of child welfare system practitioners dedicated to improving the well-being of New Mexico's children and families.                                                                                                                                                                                  

ECHO Sessions are typically held on Tuesday from noon to 1:15 p.m. Sessions come in two formats. The first is a didactic presentation format given by a subject matter expert, followed by Q&A.  These are open to everyone.  The second format is a case/issue processing format that is open to NMFAP practitioners only. These sessions typically alternate every other week. 

If you are a program practitioner and would like to offer a topic or have an issue/case for discussion, that you think will benefit the team, please fill out this form and email it to: echonmfap@gmail.com.

All other questions or comments can also be sent to: echonmfap@gmail.com.
