Providing Stability in New Mexico

While dealing with trauma at home, our sponsorship program offers consistency for children in need

The town of Bloomfield, where our affiliated project, the Hanaa Dli Community School/Dormitory, is located, is known as New Mexico’s “tableland” — a desert crisscrossed by gullies and washes in the United States’ Navajo Nation.

A School Full of Sponsored Children

At Lake Valley Boarding School, every child in attendance is in the Children Incorporated sponsorship program

Even by Navajo reservation standards, our affiliated project, the Lake Valley Boarding School, is located in an incredibly remote area of New Mexico, which makes our partnership with the school incredibly valuable to both the children and the school’s administrators. In fact, there are a total of 32 students in attendance at Lake Valley – each of which is sponsored through our sponsorship program. “Over the years, there has been talk of closing the school and […]
