Kristy Anderson, one of Heading Home’s most dedicated employees, retired in October. Kristy worked directly with clients and volunteers as Home Teams Program Manager within the Albuquerque Heading Home initiative. Home Teams are groups of volunteers that help to socialize our newly-housed clients and are a vital component to our Housing First approach.

Kristy was a pro at getting to know clients personally and then trying to find a perfect fit in a volunteer that could help ease the transition from the streets into housing. Clients and staff appreciated her smiling face and helpful demeanor at our Peer-to-Peer luncheons and her wit and skill as a writer and editor.

She will be greatly missed by staff, clients and the volunteers she worked with. We wish Kristy the very best in her next chapter!
