ABOUT US

The High Mountain Youth Project of Lincoln County, New Mexico, (HMYP) envisions a loving and caring community where all youth are protected, empowered, loved, respected and treated with dignity.

We provide a safe and healthy environment at our Evening Drop-in and Study Center, where students can relax and interact with other students and trained and caring adults. The Center is currently open Monday through Friday from 4-9 PM and from 2:30-9:00 PM on Wednesdays (early release days for schools). We offer snacks and a hot meal, a place to do laundry, a quiet place to study – including the use of computers and help with homework, indoor and outdoor recreation, and a library. Students ride the school bus or provide their own transportation to the Center and we can provide rides home.

Referrals to other resources and services are also available.

We are located at 637 Sudderth Drive, between the Old Mill and Yee’s Chinese Restaurant in Ruidoso, New Mexico.
