Welcome to the City of Albuquerque

Goal 1 - Human and Family Development

Goal 1: People of all ages have the opportunity to participate in the community and economy and are well sheltered, safe, healthy, and educated.


Why is this goal important?

As an Albuquerque resident, there are probably conditions in your life that you feel are ideal for yourself and your family members, such as a good education, being healthy, having a good living environment, and overall being prepared to be an active member of your community. Each day you make decisions toward achieving these conditions. And yet, you’re not alone. Your communities, schools, the local city government, as well as state and federal agencies, all support you in your mission to achieve these desired conditions for you and your family.
