What We Do

Our Unique Mission

New Mexico Appleseed is a nonpartisan, nonprofit organization focused on improving the lives of the poor and underserved through systemic change.  Our results are high impact and lasting.


Our Unique Goal

New Mexico Appleseed works on the systemic level to design, test, and implement practical solutions to difficult issues. While many organizations serve meals, educate children, and assist the poor, New Mexico Appleseed is unique in its focus on systemic change (as opposed to direct service). Our method strives to correct structural barriers to opportunity by designing and advocating for effective solutions through policy, legislative, and market-based reform.

Focusing on issues like hunger, education and homelessness, New Mexico Appleseed’s goal is to make systemic change that yields permanent or long term improvement for the poor and underserved.
