Meet Our staff
Director of Programs
A lifetime New Mexican, Fermin has been with the VIC® since its inception in 2005. An Army Veteran himself, Fermin understands the needs of the Veteran community and the complex issues that affect New Mexicans struggling to improve their lives throughout the state. Fermin has helped create every program within the VIC® and was integral in their development of the Transitional Housing program that was one of the nation’s first programs co-located with a local motel provider. A compassionate and innovative thinker, Fermin is widely regarded as the “Veteran” everyone can call when they find a Hero in need anywhere in the state and prides himself with a long family history throughout New Mexico. As the Director of Programs, Fermin is responsible for the evaluation, implementation, oversight and management of multiple programs with the organization and is key to the continued growth and success in helping expand our services to all Veteran families in New Mexico.
