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.
RARE: Each year a goal is set for how many people will be housed. This will reduce the number of people living on the streets.
SHORT-LIVED: Through shared metrics and improved community coordination, we aim to move people from homelessness into housing within 60 days.
NON-RECURRING: We expect a housing retention rate after 12 months of 70% or higher.
Through creative community partnerships with for-profit, non-profit, private, public, faith and political sectors, we are pro-actively stretching limited resources and saving lives. We feel that this is “the smart way to do the right thing.”
