How OFRA Works

The Office of Family Representation and Advocacy provides high quality legal representation and advocacy for New Mexico families in the child abuse and neglect system. As funding allows, the Office will provide Interdisciplinary Legal Teams (a lawyer, a social worker, and a peer navigator) to advocate and help children and families successfully access the resources, services, and concrete supports they need to stay together safely whenever possible.

From our Director, Beth Gillia, JD, MA

“I believe children and families deserve the highest quality legal representation, advocacy, and support because every child and every family matters.”

Our work at OFRA is guided by a diverse team of attorneys, social workers, peer mentors, and community members.
