The Smart Way to do the Right Thing.

Envisioning an Albuquerque where homelessness is rare, short-lived and nonrecurring.

The Albuquerque Heading Home Initiative follows a collective social impact model which relies on the strength of its multi-agency partnership.  This collaboration brings about measurable and lasting change through our community’s efforts to end chronic homelessness.  Each agency’s strengths and expertise combine together to create permanent housing solutions for our most vulnerable neighbors. Albuquerque Heading Home is truly a city-wide collaboration that includes many public, private, government, and non-profit partners.

Albuquerque Heading Home is about solutions. Our passion for our work is fueled by a desire to make important, positive and lasting change. We care about the people we serve!

We aim to make experiences of homelessness rare, short-lived, and non-recurring. We achieve this by providing permanent, supportive housing solutions to people and their families who are medically vulnerable and have been experiencing chronic homelessness.

This post today from our Housing Specialist, Dorothee Otero:

"Fernando is a 71-year old gentleman who became homeless after losing his wife several years ago. For the past year, he has been living in an empty garage and when the weather started to get cold, he huddled up against the water heater for warmth. He is dealing with some serious medical conditions which are closely monitored by a visiting nurse.

"This morning, Fernando received the keys to his own apartment. And there wasn't a dry eye in the room when he thanked all of us for his new home.

"Thanks to ABQ Heading Home, Lynn from SHC, Lance from St Martin's, and Frank, one of our great landlords, one more of our beautiful clients is home for the holidays. And he was very thankful for the beautiful Christmas wreath that was crafted by my friend Terri Wells."
