About Adelante & The National Council on Aging
Adelante has been working as a nonprofit agency in New Mexico for over 35 years. Currently, Adelante supports over 1000 New Mexicans including people with mental and physical disabilities, the elderly, people with neuromuscular diseases, and disabled veterans.
Adelante has worked to connect people with disabilities and seniors participating in our programs to a variety of benefits for many years. In addition, we have the only CWIC certified benefits professional in New Mexico, outside of the few who work for the government.
Adelante began operating a Benefits Enrollment Center (BEC) for the state of New Mexico thanks to funding from the National Council on Aging because we have unique connections to people with disabilities around the state as well as great community partners through the Area Agencies on Aging and AARP. The Benefits Connection Center is also in-line with Adelante’s mission in supporting people with disabilities and seniors. We hope you and thousands of others across the state of New Mexico find the service helpful because New Mexico has one of the lowest benefits participation rates in the nation and we are among the most in need of those benefits.
Adelante offers FREE screening for a variety of government benefits and enrollment services to adults across New Mexico. We even help you complete the requirement paperwork to apply.Ready to apply? Call us at one of the numbers above or complete our Get Started form.
Adelante is happy to have continued funding from the Walmart Foundation as well as The National Council on Aging (NCOA), the nation's leader in representing seniors and other community organizations that serve them. For over 60 years, NCOA has been the most trusted leader in helping the aging population navigate the challenges of aging in America. They partner with local and national agencies, like Adelante, to help improve the lives of seniors. To find out more about NCOA visit www.NCOA.org.
