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.

Emergency housing and care is delivered through the Westside Emergency Housing Center (men, women and families) and the Albuquerque Opportunity Center, which hosts a men’s emergency shelter program and a 24/7 medical respite care program. Permanent supportive housing services are provided through the Albuquerque Heading Home and Family Housing Assistance initiatives. ABQ StreetConnect is our prioritized outreach program connecting those on the streets with the highest records of emergency service use to appropriate support services and housing.
