Valley View is involved with many mission projects in Northern New Mexico. For more information about these projects, please click the link. If you have the time and talent to help, please contact Valley View to further discuss these opportunities.

Espanola Teen Center -- Valley View UMC supports the teen center with food, support, and help with projects.

Crisis Center of Northern New Mexico - provides a variety of professional services to victims of violent crimes. It also provides a safe shelter to victims, and their children, of domestic violence and/or sexual assault in an effort to stop the cycle of violence.

Food Bank - Valley View has a food bank which supplies bags of food sufficient for two people. These are given to people on an as-needed basis. Needed supplies are listed on the link.

McCurdy Ministries - McCurdy is a project of the General Board of Global Ministries of the United Methodist Church and receives support in many ways from Valley View UMC.  McCurdy serves the Espanola community and helps with the McCurdy Charter School.

Sewciables - was started by the United Methodist Women as part of a national quilt project called "Prayers and Squares." They make hand made quilts and present them to newborns, as well as ill children and adults.

Snack Packs of Food-- are backpacks with imperishable food provided each week during the school year for elementary children who would have no food to eat on the weekends.  These backpacks go to students in schools in Northern New Mexico communities. This year Valley View is providing 85 snack packs a week. This program has been a great success because of all the help from the members.

Student Scholarships - there are two scholarship funds supported by the members of our church--the Don Winchell scholarship and the Educational Scholarship.

Pennies for Ministries - there is a five gallon jar in which members put all the pennies they have received. This money/gift certificates are personally taken to street people in the area.

Espanola Street Ministry serves the homeless and marginalized of the Espanola area.

Espanola is a city with a variety of issues that lead to dysfunctional families.  These factors contribute to the problem the Espanola Street Ministry seeks to address by working one-on-one with the homeless and the marginalized.  Volunteers seek to establish rapport, to identify the individual’s most pressing need, and then to jointly determine how that need might be fully or partially met.
