Have Something to Give?

Please call Chandler Smith-Stetson at (505) 226-1700.

Albuquerque Heading Home accepts slightly care-worn furniture and other items (see “What’s Needed” below).  Some items we need immediately.

We have created this list to guide our supporters in giving the most critically needed donations.  The list is updated regularly.

Thank you for your interest in Albuquerque Heading Home and your help in fulfilling our vision to make homelessness rare, short-lived and non-recurring!
