ENDING HOMELESSNESS FOR GOOD
We believe in Housing First because people like Jim should be able to focus on bettering themselves rather than worrying about where they’re going to sleep next. Instead of worrying about stable housing, he has been able to focus on his art and personal wellness.
With your support, we can continue helping people suffering from homelessness by finding the secure housing they need.
To end homelessness by providing affordable, permanent, and supportive housing to individuals and families in New Mexico
HOME – everyone deserves to live in a place that is permanent, safe, and secure
EMPOWERMENT – creating space and opportunities for personal choice and transformative growth
BELONGING – a sense of community that comes from connections to family, neighbors, and friends
INTEGRITY – everyone who walks through our door is worthy of dignity, respect, and our best efforts
IMPACT – achieving our mission through proven practices and collaborative partnerships
Permanent supportive housing has made it possible for Jesse to get the support he needs to stay clean and sober, find work that satisfies him, work on his art, and begin his journey of health and healing.

Not only did you give us the keys to our own home, you have also given us keys to many opportunities to better our lives and success in all our endeavors. You are all a blessing for those who are rolling up their tents and following in our footsteps!
I have gotten the trust of my family back because I am in a stable place. My grandkids come to visit me. And now my house is not just a place to live, they (the grandkids) have turned it into a home. When I put my key in the door, I am home, and that is a great feeling.
For 20 years I spent my time looking for a place to sleep at night, looking for food, fighting for my health, and fearing for my life. I don’t think people understand what it means to be stable and have a home. It’s my sanctuary, it’s where I feel safe.
