About Us

Serving Seniors of Southern New Mexico was founded in 2023 by Dr. Jesus Duran based on the need of his patients for support, services and equipment while recognizing the lack of affordability and resources in our community. Due to the limitations of federal health insurance and state assistance, our older adults have nowhere to turn for support. His goal was to make sure that no older adult nor caregiver in need would have to suffer the limitations of losing independency.

Serving Seniors of Southern New Mexico was created to be a resource for older adults and their families in time of need. SSSNM operates through the Community Foundation of Southern New Mexico (CFSNM), which provides support and assistance to older adults, as well as connect them with resources in their area, no matter where in New Mexico they live. The CFSNM serves as a community resource, connects donors to needs, and supports charitable organizations in their work.

To help individuals take a proactive approach on their health, SSSNM has educational programs which provide free lectures and information at sites across the southern region of NM to promote healthy aging. What began as an idea few years ago with a charity golf tournament has grown into a full charity fund with the goal to assist as many older adults as possible in our community and improve their quality of Iife..
