At Heading Home we’re in the business of changing lives and our community through services proven to work. An exciting part of our Housing First approach is offering a social support network to our clients that have been housed through the Albuquerque Heading Home program (AHH). We call these volunteer groups “Home Teams,” who befriend and help socialize our newly-housed clients.

Betty has been housed through AHH for the last four years. Before that she experienced homelessness later in life for 13 years. After being housed through AHH, she was paired with a Home Team that included Stephanie. Today, they are like family. When Betty was diagnosed with cancer, Stephanie and other Home Team members drove her to treatments. Betty is now cancer-free and has stability in her life due to housing and the caring support of her Home Team.

Heading Home is filled with life-changing stories like these. In addition to our Housing First program, we provide nearly 600 shelter beds in the winter and 101 in the summer. Our respite care wing provides medical care 24 hours a day to as many as 30 individuals who have no place to recover after a hospital stay. Our wrap around services include securing eligible benefits for our clients and getting them into housing as soon as possible.

With your support, we can continue and build on successful solutions to homelessness in our community. Please take the time to give today and thank you for your ongoing support of Heading Home!
