NM Family Services' offices at a city-owned building in Sunland Park, N.M. is seen on Monday, June 27, 2022.
  • New Mexico Family Services is a private business providing a range of community services.
  • NMFS settled a lawsuit against the city in 2016 over lease terms for two buildings.
  • On June 15, a district court judge ruled in the city’s favor, telling NMFS to leave and pay back rent.

SUNLAND PARK — Lourdes Torres stood in front of a cinderblock office building with a replica electric guitar adorning its front, and declared victory in her latest skirmish with the city Monday morning.

For several years the building has been the home of NM Family Services, a community care center providing a range of services. Earlier this month, a court ordered them to leave and pay back rent to the city, but Torres said she has filed an appeal of the judge’s writ seeking a temporary restraining order, averting eviction for now.

According to state records, NM Family Services, LLC was founded in 2014. It leased two city-owned locations on McNutt Road where it provided community services including meal service, as well as medical and behavioral health services through licensed contractors.
