Kids First Peñasco, a program of Taos Health Systems, is changing/re-structuring to offer new services and therapies to families in Peñasco. After 3 years of successful collaboration with Los Brazos and the Peñasco Independent School District, the Kids First Peñasco Program is now poised to collaborate with a new health partner, Non-Violence Works, Inc.
Since 2004, Non Violence Works has provided services to more than 2500 individuals and families in Taos County, and through collaboration with Taos Health Systems, will be able to bring behavioral health services to children, adolescents and adults in Peñasco. Programs to be offered include a Therapeutic Afterschool Program and a Nonviolence Education Program.
“The partnership will provide more opportunity for the existing program to build a sustainable structure that provides direct services and benefits to students and their families.” says Taos Health Systems CEO Bill Patten.
