Our mission is to foster an environment where our youth can reach their full potential through programs related to education, hunger and other unmet needs.
Our vision is a future where healthy kids are the fabric of a strong community.
LUCIENTE'S COVID-19 emergency response
Luciente is delivering weekly bags of food staples to 45 families in need in Abiquiu, Youngsville, Coyote, and Gallina during the COVID-19 crisis. We are also organizing the delivery of Help New Mexico bulk food packages to 133 families in northern Rio Arriba County. Community donations are playing a huge role in keeping this effort going. Please donate to help neighbors in need! When this Phase 1 of our program comes to an end in late July due to schools reopening, Luciente will have provided an estimated 40,000 "cook-at-home" meals to our most vulnerable neighbors.
Our volunteers, donors, grantors, and community contributions are what make our emergency food deliveries possible. Luciente thanks the Con Alma Foundation, Santa Fe Community Foundation, the Georgia O'Keeffe Museum, the Los Alamos Community Foundation, the McCune Charitable Foundation, the New Mexico Foundation, the All Together New Mexico Fund, Help New Mexico, Kroger's, Romeros Fruit Stand, over 70 individual donors, and our wonderful group of volunteers. We are strong together.
Luciente is now working with the New Mexico Governor's office as we enter Phase 2 of our program to address childhood hunger in our surrounding communities.
Luciente is grateful to the following organizations for their support!
Luciente's COVID-19 project is funded in part by a grant from Con Alma Health Foundation.
