AHF and the Americorp VISTA Experience
With the Atrisco Heritage Foundation there is a request, a need, and vision all its own. AHF has developed programs to help serve and improve our community. Building a bridge so others can have a better chance at life and career options is more than a duty, but a call to serve, to forge a path for others while leaving a legacy for the next generation.

Atrisco Heritage Foundation To Manage Unique Cultural Art Project
Frederico Vigil has blessed this earth with a number of great works of art that will be around for decades to come. This latest project is another example of that. The support by Atrisco Heritage Foundation and the Atrisco Companies of Federico has always been strong. Atrisco is very appreciative of being included in the latest project by reference to "Atrisco 1598" in the fresco image. The symbolism is significant because of 16th century Spanish colonialism into the New World which ultimately lead to Spanish Land Grants like Atrisco. Atrisco's connection between Old and New Worlds is on full display for Spaniards and other visitors to see. It is also another great placement of our land grant name. We have now (5) prominent placements of names including here in Albuquerque, NM and also now in Alburquerque, Spain.
