Anna, Age Eight Institute
The Anna, Age Eight Institute was funded by the New Mexico state legislature in 2019 to reach the goal of ensuring that our children, students and families are trauma-free and empowered to succeed. To achieve this we’re using a data-driven and collaborative process focused on building the capacity of each county to strengthen local systems of health, safety and resilience.
We bring to each county’s leaders and stakeholders a process of brainstorming, learning, mobilizing and innovating, all with the support of state-of-the-art technology. Locally, the Institute’s 100% New Mexico initiative helps guide collaborative efforts using the critical steps of assessing, planning, action and evaluation to ensure accessibility to the ten vital services shown to empower all families and communities.
