We are pleased to announce that 2021 marks SHC's 25th year as an organization dedicated to ending homelessness for hundreds of people each day. We were founded in 1996 in response to local service providers’ recognition of a community-wide gap in safe and affordable housing for homeless and near-homeless persons with behavioral health disorders. Through the development of affordable and permanent supportive housing apartment units in Albuquerque, Gallup, and Las Vegas, NM and the administration of tenant-based rental assistance housing vouchers in Albuquerque and Gallup, we've been able to end and prevent homelessness for hundreds of people every day. SHC provides service coordination and collaborates with behavioral health service providers to ensure long-term housing stability for our housing participants.
We will be celebrating all year beginning with a kick-off at our 2021 Welcome Home fundraiser in April. You can be part of our history with a commemorative brick in honor of our 25th anniversary. The bricks will be part of a permanent installation at Downtown @700-2nd Apartments. For more information at www.shcnm.org/25brickcampaign/
