Being there for each other with #SmilesAcrossMiles #NMDDPC


Social distancing does not mean we are alone.

At NMDDPC, we are helping people who feel isolated or lonely by connecting them with other people, especially with people living in nursing homes, group homes, and places where people are separated from their families and friends.

Let’s tell each other about our lives! Do you have a story to tell? What are you doing differently during social distancing? What are your best ideas and favorite activities?

Here’s what you can do:

  • Write a letter
  • Make an art project
  • Record a video

Send it to:

New Mexico Developmental Disabilities Planning Council
625 Silver Avenue SW, Suite #100
Albuquerque, NM 87102



We will be rolling out weekly themes and posting about the communities we are connecting.
