What is NAPPR’s service area?
NAPPR provides direct early childhood development services to families with young children in four New Mexico counties: Bernalillo, Cibola, Sandoval and Valencia. NAPPR’s Dental Support Center provides training, technical assistance and other support to Indian Health Service Dental Clinics throughout New Mexico and in Southern Colorado and El Paso, Texas.
Does NAPPR only serve Native Americans?
NAPPR now serves Non-Native Americans as well as Native Americans. Some of our programs, such as the Tribal Home Visiting program are offered exclusively to Native American families with young children. The Dental Support Center is also funded specifically to improve the oral health among Native Americans. Our other programs are available to Native and Non-Native Americans alike.
How are NAPPR services funded?
NAPPR receives funding from a variety of sources that include state, federal, foundation and other sources of revenue. We are continually looking for new opportunities to provide additional services to achieve our mission and for additional funding to support the work we do. As a nonprofit organization, NAPPR services are also supported by donations from individuals and companies who wish to be a part of helping us to achieve our vision of Healthy Families * Strong Communities.
