We believe in Housing First because people like Melody 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, Melody has been able to focus on her family and her 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
