Volunteer at Supportive Housing

Volunteer Collage
Volunteer Opportunities:

The Supportive Housing Coalition of New Mexico depends on the support of our partners and donors to continue our mission of preventing and reducing homelessness in New Mexico. We have several volunteer opportunities for those who prefer a more "hands-on" approach to contributing to this effort. Working with others is always more fun!

All volunteers are required to complete a volunteer application and attend a volunteer orientation. A background check may be required.  Please call 505-255-3643 or email info@shcnm.org for more information.  Volunteer Application Materials
