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.

STORIES OF HEADING HOME- Heading Home Staff since 2008
David is a Program Director at Heading Home, working closely with residents and program participants at the Albuquerque Opportunity Center (AOC) campus. While out to dinner one night with his family, David noticed another family at a nearby table. The man, enjoying a meal with his wife and baby, looked familiar to David. Suddenly, the man arose from his seat and approached David’s table to express gratitude for everything David and his coworkers had done to help him- he had been a resident at the AOC! David often recalls that moment and the opportunity to see the new life that the man was able to make for himself. He credits his continued passion for his work to this experience and others like it.

Respite Care Program resident, 2015
"José" was homeless and sick. An amputee in a wheelchair and suffering from diabetes and a heart condition, he got a dog bite that became infected and caused damage to the muscle tissue. When he came to Heading Home, the goal was to make him comfortable and provide shelter so he could pass away peacefully. But José had a different plan. While in Respite Care AOC, José was able to rest and get well. He recovered from the wound and regained use of damaged muscles. He was fitted for a prosthetic leg and no longer needs his wheelchair. Now José is caring for himself and makes regular visits to his doctor- he even drives himself!
