We are fortunate to be central to the City of Albuquerque’s community response that is assertively planning, collaborating, and preparing healthcare and shelter providers during this public health emergency. Thank you to the National Health Care for the Homeless Council for their resources and being a guide to help meet the needs of people experiencing homelessness during this time.

Your giving plays a key role in their care. We anticipate an ever-changing landscape of health care and housing needs throughout this pandemic. In fact, we fear that the number of people experiencing homelessness will increase. Please donate today to ensure AHCH is resourced to continue fighting homelessness in the future and for long as homelessness exists. Donate today: https://bit.ly/2DpinMr

Racism is systemic, meaning it is perpetuated throughout history by more than just the actions people take. Racism takes root in our communities and is passed on from generation to generation. It is ingrained into our laws and procedures.

The Federal Pandemic Unemployment Compensation program ended July 31, which means workers in most states won’t qualify for the payments after this week. Most will be left with regular unemployment benefits, which total only a few hundred dollars a week in many states. Read more: https://nyti.ms/2D4yKhp

ANNOUNCEMENT FROM AHCH DENTAL CLINIC

Our communities have been through a lot over the last few months. While many things have changed, one thing has remained the same: AHCH's commitment to your safety.

The Federal Pandemic Unemployment Compensation program has ended, and that means that more than 20 million Americans saw their weekly housing income plummet to levels far below the #poverty line. https://nyti.ms/2DjxS8n

AHCH turns 35 🎉 In 2019, we were honored to receive the Hopkins Award for Excellence in Ethical Practice by a Non-Profit Organization at the 2019 Ethics in Business Award Ceremony. Stay tuned for milestones and announcements.

Your gift Saves Lives

Your donation provides critical services for the most vulnerable populations

Homelessness will make you sick and can kill you.

The statistics are grim. In the City of Albuquerque, a minimum of 1,318 people reported experiencing homelessness on January 23, 2017 per the New Mexico Coalition to End Homelessness Point-In-Time Count, and per Albuquerque Health Care for the Homeless (AHCH) and community best estimates, at least 16,000 persons – approximately 2.3% of Bernalillo County residents – will experience homelessness during the year.

When people experience homelessness

access to adequate health care can mean the difference between getting back on your feet, getting sicker, or even dying.  AHCH believes health care is a human right and that all people are entitled to health care. We serve people in many stages of homelessness including those living in cars or motels, couch surfing, on the street, in shelters and in transitional housing. Having access to a doctor and medical care to take care of chronic conditions like diabetes, high blood pressure, chronic pain, is essential.

For over three decades, Albuquerque Health Care for the Homeless (AHCH) has served our community as the only health care organization in Central New Mexico dedicated exclusively to providing services to homeless people. AHCH provides critical services to over 7,000 men, women and children every year. By addressing the health-related causes of homelessness, AHCH makes it possible for people to find solutions to end their homelessness.
