About Us

Homelessness is everyone’s problem

Heading Home is a New Mexico non-profit that provides emergency housing, permanent supportive housing services and prioritized street outreach to people experiencing homelessness. Heading Home programs include permanent supportive housing through the Albuquerque Heading Home, Keeping Families Together, Family Housing Assistance and ABQ StreetConnect initiatives, and emergency housing and care at the Westside Emergency Housing Center (men, women and families) and Albuquerque Opportunity Center. The latter center hosts a men’s emergency shelter program and a 24/7 medical respite care program. Read more about our programs here.
