ABC Community School Partnership organizes school and community resources to strategically influence student and family success inside and outside the classroom . As of the 2015-2016 school year, there are 23 Community Schools and 52 ABC supported after-school programs, funded primarily by the City of Albuquerque, Bernalillo County, Albuquerque Public Schools and nonprofits including United Way of Central New Mexico and Albuquerque Business Education Compact.

One program that has received national recognition and replication is ABC’s Homework Diner . The program addresses both low student achievement and food insecurity. After receiving tutoring and homework help at no cost, students then with their parents or caregivers share a hot meal prepared by volunteers.

NMCF has been ABC Community School Partnership’s fiscal sponsor since 2008.
