COVID-19 is a highly infectious and fast-spreading virus. Symptoms and their effects can range from mild to severe and in certain cases result in extreme health complications and death. Positive cases have been identified in communities across New Mexico. State health officials continue to test, process, monitor and track instances of the virus — and the state of New Mexico has taken proactive, aggressive public health actions to mitigate the spread of the disease.

Non Violent Workplace
Red Mountain is committed to a non-violent work place. We have a strict no-tolerance policy for violence and have procedures in place to prevent any possible threat. We believe that violent behavior often begins with verbal threats and controlling behavior that overtime could escalate to involve physical harm. Outside and inside security cameras are installed to protect our staff, Treatment Foster Parents, children, birth families and other visitors to our office. Our staff is encouraged, without fear of retribution, to report all suspicious behavior they encounter on social media, at home or in the workplace.
