Adelante is a locally founded nonprofit 501(c)3 human service agency with locations throughout New Mexico. Adelante, which means 'forward’ in Spanish, describes our approach to supporting people with disabilities. Too many people are taught to accept stereotypes, limiting them from moving forward. Adelante says, "Set goals and we will help you achieve them."
Adelante was formed in 1978, a time when ideas such as independence, rights, choice and respect were emerging. The agency embraced those concepts and decided to make a real difference in the lives of people with disabilities. Since then, Adelante has taken the opportunity to expand services as needs have arisen. Today, the agency offers residential support, therapy services, employment opportunities, and a variety of individualized services for people with mental and physical disabilities. One of Adelante’s guiding visions is to be a community resource and to help people with disabilities have valued roles in their communities.
