Roles and Responsibilities, Essential Functions, Building a Board Cycle and Structure, Effective Board Meetings, Fundraising, Fiscal Oversight and Accountability, Fiscal Responsibility, Nonprofit Fiscal Policies and Procedures.

Attendees of the 2023 REALIZE Board Training 

In 2018 Building Movement Projects and Strong Families New Mexico were working together in successful collaboration to aid communities in southern New Mexico.  In particular, they helped La Union Helping Hands to positively enhance their nonprofit organization's key goals and identify their economic strengths and weaknesses. This three-day project took, instead, three months to complete.

Upon completion of the seminar, La Union Helping Hands was issued a Certificate of Achievement for Successful completion of the Southern New Mexico Common Good Action Project.

La Union Helping Hands participants include: Mary Ann Galindo, Matilde Ortiz, Yolanda Galindo, Facundo Ruiz, and Anthony Quinn Castro
