The NM Home Visiting Summit is a gathering of statewide early childhood professionals who work in and advocate for home visiting as an effective model to improve the health and well-being of children and families. This two-day event, the first of its kind in New Mexico, aims to share knowledge and elevate the profession of home visiting, while bolstering family support systems throughout the diverse communities in our state.
