With the recent dialogue regarding downtown safety, Heading Home’s Board Chair, Robin Dozier Otten, and CEO, Dennis Plummer, penned an op-ed to give much-needed nuance to issues of homelessness and ways AHH is stepping up to lend a hand.
“Downtown safety and business security issues have made the headlines recently, and for good reason. The well-being of our civic center speaks to the health of our broader community and highlights the challenges that we collectively face. We would like to highlight one collaboration that is a part of needed solutions…. While we strongly caution against overlaying homelessness onto other issues – crime is crime, not homelessness – Heading Home pledges to work through the Albuquerque Heading Home partnership to do our part.”
