The mission of the El Paso Federation of Families is to focus on the needs of children and adolescents experiencing emotional, behavioral, and/or mental illness and their families. The El Paso Federation of Families is committed to: Providing families with needed emotional and informational support. Advocating for children and families to receive needed supports and services. Educating families about their rights and the array of accessible high qauality, family centered services available.
