Bridges Project for Education

Bridges' mission is to expand college access and improve college retention for people of all ages, with an emphasis on students among the first generation in their family to seek higher education. Over twenty years, we've counseled 2,700+ clients.


Bridges was founded in 1997 to raise the low number of college graduates in Taos Co. A lower tax base means our schools have less staff, and guidance counselors in charge of credit remediation, testing and ensuring graduation report a student to counselor ratio of 400:1. Parents whose transition to adulthood did not include college can find it difficult to guide their children in this unfamiliar process. Without support, each generation becomes more marginalized by fewer options and prospects.

Our population is autistic adults (and late-teens). Statistically, and despite two-thirds of autistic adults having no intellectual impairment, this group is socioeconomically disadvantaged. Over 80 percent of autistic adults are under-employed or unemployed (the highest percentage of under/unemployment of any disability group), and 85 percent of autistic college graduates are unemployed. These figures significantly affect this group's ability to generate sufficient income for independence.

We intend to serve residents of the Parkland Hills and Southeast Heights neighborhoods of Albuquerque who, whether due to age or disability, need help with transportation, light chores in and around the home, and compassionate visits to reduce a sense of isolation. Similar to the rest of Albuquerque and the U.S., these neighborhoods (Census Tract 11.01) have more than 13% of residents over 65 and double that percentage between 50 and 65. We will not limit services based on income.

TenderLove Community Center (TLCC)

The mission of TenderLove Community Center (TLCC) is to help homeless, near homeless and low-income women achieve stable, self-supporting lives for themselves and their families. We seek to break cycles of poverty and homelessness.


Founded in 2011 as the inspiration of our CEO, who was once homeless and immigrant herself, recognizing that to break the cycles of poverty and homelessness, individuals needed more that just food, clothing and shelter: they needed a purpose, a plan, and a way to set a direction for themselves. After a move from Georgia to New Mexico and years of research, TLCC opened its doors in August 2013, to its first facility, focusing on training homeless and added Recovery / Transitional housing in 2016.

In 1996, BEMP was founded in Albuquerque, NM as a partnership with the University of New Mexico and The Bosque School to monitor the state of the bosque ecosystem.

On average, 10,000 students in the Albuquerque metropolitan area explore the bosque with their teachers and BEMP staff each year. We are the only long-standing environmental monitoring program collaborating with local K-12 students and their teachers to track long-term change in the Middle Rio Grande bosque. Each year, BEMP works with 10-15 schools. Approximately ⅔ of these schools are Title I schools. In Title I schools, at least 40% of students come from low-income families.
