Tenant Based Rental Assistance

SHC administers nearly 400 tenant based rental assistance vouchers to people with behavioral health disorders who are experiencing homelessness. All project participants have ongoing access to a comprehensive range of supportive services once they are placed in housing. SHC works with the City of Albuquerque, U.S. Dept. of Housing & Urban Development, and NM CYFD to administer these vouchers.

Move-In & Eviction Prevention

We help people with one-time rental deposits and other expenses that support people with low incomes in upfront expenses that often act as a barrier to renting an apartment home. We have helped over 1500 individuals and families avoid homelessness with these one-time grants.

Crisis Housing

SHC provides an apartment unit for up to 120 days for people discharged from hospitalization or incarceration. We've helped over 250 people avoid homelessness and establish stability in their lives.
