Our Albuquerque Street Connect (ABQSC) team strategizes every week with the Albuquerque Police Department (APD)! During those meetings, we figure out how we can best support each other and help individuals experiencing homelessness who are high utilizers of emergency systems in the downtown, valley, and southeast areas of Albuquerque. The clients we serve are referred to us through APD, the University of New Mexico Hospital, and the City of Albuquerque.
In August, Chief Medina took the time to learn more about our partnership with APD and Heading Home’s work through our ABQSC program that’s serving a subpopulation of people experiencing homelessness who are often excluded from mainstream healthcare and homeless services who are high utilizers of emergency systems.
