Adelante is a diverse nonprofit organization that supports
people with mental and physical disabilities
seniors & disadvantaged populations
across New Mexico. We innovate to meet the needs of the community.
Due to the weather and some icy roads, Adelante’s snow policy will be in effect today, Tuesday, February 19, 2019. Our Community Options/Day programs will be closed. Our administrative offices are also closed to the public, but some staff will be needed. If you can make it there safely, do so. If not, call your supervisor. Most of our Enterprises businesses will be open as usual to support customers. Bargain Square will not be open today. Contract sites, such as Kirtland AFB, follow their own closures, so check the news stations for updates.
If in doubt, contact your supervisor. Thanks everyone and stay safe and warm and safe!
Adelante would like to thank NM Business First, Western Sky Community Care and Meow Wolf for the grant we received at February’s Grow New Mexico – Philanthropy event. The proposal Adelante submitted was for our for DiverseIT program which provides IT training and job opportunities for people with disabilities and other populations that are too often left out of technology careers.
Adelante GiveABQ is Now Open! One of the biggest challenges facing nonprofits is how to handle in-kind donations – gifts of tangible items like office furniture or home furnishings. Even though they are useful, many nonprofits can’t accept those donations because of transportation and storage costs, as well as the logistical issues involved. Donors can get frustrated because they make calls and can’t find an organization that wants or needs their items. Desks, dressers, and more end up in a landfill unnecessarily. These challenges are now being addressed by GiveABQ, the newest community resource of Adelante that just opened in Albuquerque.
Adelante wants to extend a huge thank you to all who participated in this year’s Giving Tuesday! In total, Adelante raised $10,055. We appreciate the outpouring of support from our donors, the generous matching gifts from our board of directors, and the Adelante team...
