Breaking Bad: Do-gooding champs?

Posted by on February 27, 2013 | One comment

As it turns out, Breaking Bad may be more than just the best scripted drama on cable television. The production is also going out with a bang of charitable heroism, on top of their consistent community activism!

NOT ONLY has the show spotlighted New Mexico as a brilliant place to film*, and highlighted the beauty of our landscapes (I’m looking at you God Mr. Slovis), but throughout production the cast, crew and studio have quite literally stepped up to the plate in taking care of those in need in our area!

RIGHT NOW there is not one, but at least FOUR charitable endeavors aimed at helping the show’s backdrop and home base:

  • Our own WORLDWIDE Raffle benefiting the Barrett Foundation, building futures for homeless women and children for over 25 years
  • The YDI “Farewell Tribute”, meet & greet opportunity, raising funds for youth arts education
  • Joy Junction, the state’s largest emergency homeless shelter, is NOW selling show donated items in their thrift shop!
  • AND the production has also donated to our designee’s site store!

If this isn’t goodness for goodness sake, we don’t know what is! To bring a world to light, and then to light up that world is quite a feat.

We will miss you Breaking Bad – soon to wrap, but NEVER EVER to be forgotten. THANK YOU!

*Vince Gilligan has conveyed more than an affinity for the Land of Enchantment…to be continued…

An Inspiring Way Out of Homelessness for New Mexico Women and Children

Posted by on February 26, 2013 | 2 comments


Homelessness is a devastating experience for families. It disrupts virtually every aspect of family life. It damages the physical and emotional health of family members and interferes with children’s education and development. The sooner a family is stabilized and able to return to permanent housing, the more successful the family will be in breaking their cycle of homelessness. With less income available for housing, food, and necessities, many families are only an accident, illness, or paycheck away from becoming homeless. Nearly 40% of the homeless population consists of families with children.

The Barrett Foundation is a New Mexico not-for-profit organization established in 1984 for the purposes of serving Albuquerque’s homeless women and children.

Its first program was Barrett House, an emergency shelter founded in 1985. The shelter can house up to 23 women and 20 children and is located in a beautiful 12,000 sq.ft. facility that was built in 2005. Women can stay up to four weeks and receive meals, clothing, case management services, and emotional support.

In 1988 the Casa Milagro program was established. This program is designed to address the needs of women who are over the age of 40 and diagnosed with chronic mental illness. This is a group home setting, and clients can stay for up to 18 months while receiving psychosocial rehabilitation services.

In 1997, the Barrett Foundation added the Bridges to Self-Sufficiency supportive housing program to address the needs of non-disabled women with or without children. This program is a collaborative effort with three other agencies to provide supportive housing to clients who are motivated to move towards independent housing and self-sufficiency. Participants must be employed or attending school and can stay in the program for up to 24 months.

Through an incredible gift in 1999, the Barrett Foundation purchased a 16-unit apartment complex that provides supportive permanent housing to graduates of Casa Milagro. The Casa Verde program provides necessary Aftercare services to recent graduates and is complemented by an Art Therapy component.

In 2004, the Barrett Foundation added Casa Socorro, yet another permanent housing program that was started as a pilot project to serve chronically homeless women. This project is yet another collaborative effort with three other agencies. All of these clients were homeless for more than one year or were homeless more than four times the previous three years at the time of admission and have a mental disability. Clients receive case management services once a week.

The Barrett Foundation truly makes a difference in the lives of over 650 women and children every year. Although our clients come from many walks of life, they all have things in common – the need for safe housing, nutritious meals, counseling, emotional support, and hope for a better tomorrow.

-The Barret Foundation

Free Screening: Water Sustainability Documentary Short – Santa Fe, NM

Posted by on January 22, 2013 | Comments Off on Free Screening: Water Sustainability Documentary Short – Santa Fe, NM


“Penasco: A Path to Water Sustainability”, a 20-minute film produced by Silver Bullet Productions (Santa Fe), with videography, sound, and editing provided by Lightningwood Pictures
(Santa Fe) – free screening on January 25th at 1:00 p.m. in the Runnels Auditorium in the Runnels Building (St. Francis Drive and Alta Vista) in Santa Fe.

“During 2012 a multi-organizational task group worked jointly to develop the New Mexico Sustainable Community Award Program, by starting with sustainable water systems as the initial category for awards. We had garnered Congressional support for this award program from the entire New Mexico delegation, and through the collaborative efforts of personnel from the New Mexico Environment Department (NMED), Rural Community Assistance Corporation (RCAC), and the Espanola Basin Regional Issues Forum (EBRIF), we mailed out 600 invitations to New Mexico water systems to apply for the award program. Ultimately, 10 water systems state-wide were selected as award winners. Each award winner was recognized individually by a letter from Secretary David Martin, NMED and further recognized last October during the award ceremony at the New Mexico Infrastructure Finance Committee conference in Taos.

In order to further recognize the winners of the Sustainable Community Awards for water system sustainability, the Penasco Mutual Domestic Water Consumers Association was chosen to represent achievements in water sustainability by serving as the subject for an educational film that could be used to inspire, educate, and train small water systems state-wide. EBRIF sponsored the film project with funding provided by Los Alamos County, and the film you will see on January 25th is the final product. The 20-minute film was produced by Silver Bullet Productions in Santa Fe with the videography, sound, and editing provided by Lightningwood Pictures. EBRIF’s goal was to create a film that could be used by state agencies, e.g. NMED, OSE, and NMFA as well as other organizations e.g. RCAC, NMRW, NCNMEDD, IFC, etc. to promote the concepts of “sustainability” and illustrate by example the process and benefits of following the path to sustainability. The criteria contained in the House Joint Memorial 86 Report with emphasis on technical, managerial, and financial capacity building were addressed in the film’s script development and editing. The film’s credit roll contains reference to addition resource information listed on two NMED websites.”

VIDEO: Fifty Years Defending Freedom

Posted by on November 1, 2012 | Comments Off on VIDEO: Fifty Years Defending Freedom

In 1962 a group of dedicated civil libertarians came together to form the ACLU of New Mexico to defend and extend our most basic freedoms. Much has changed since then, and the ACLU has been such an important part of our state’s progress.

In honor of their fiftieth year defending freedom in New Mexico, the ACLU has produced the above short film, “Fifty Years Defending Freedom”. In this 17 minute film, you will hear from some of the key people from the organization’s past and present speak about the values that drive the important work of the organization and the historic civil liberties victories they have won over the past half century.

Check-out some ACLU NM News here, including:

With the help of local supporters, the ACLU has grown from a tiny, all-volunteer organization to the largest, hardest-hitting civil liberties organization in the state. Today, the government knows that if they violate people’s rights, the ACLU WILL hold them accountable to the law.
