The New Mexico Children, Youth and Families Department has launched a new service, REACH NM, providing text-based reporting and engagement. REACH NM allows young people to connect directly with CYFD workers for resources, help, and reporting potential abuse or neglect. The service is free to any New Mexican with a text-message enabled cell phone.
REACH NM is available 24 hours a day, 365 days a year. You can text with an expert for help finding resources in your community, reach out for assistance with basic needs for yourself or others, report concerns of abuse and neglect in your home, or report suspected abuse or neglect that may be occurring in someone else's home or in the community.
Help is a text away at (505) 591-9444.
