Meeting Our Mission

During this COVID-19 crisis, SHC is considered an “essential organization” to keep people housed and avoid a return to homelessness. So, we are doing just that. These past few weeks have tested our adaptability, our creativity, our patience. How do we get and keep people housed while keeping everyone safe? How do we take care of our program participants and our staff? People are scared, confused by an overabundance of information and misinformation, and tensions can run high.
Life goes on and we are still operational. It has been a strain on our employees, many of whom are needing to protect themselves and their own families. These employees are working with landlords, inspecting their housing, assessing their needs for services, making referrals and connecting them to resources, keeping appointments when needed, and working remotely when appropriate. We are learning how to telecommute while still paying bills, applying for grants, tracking data, planning for our future, and problem solving on a daily basis. We are not moving forward on any evictions, working with people who have lost their income, delivering bus passes and connecting people with resources to meet basic needs such as food and healthcare. We are providing some cleaning products and paper goods - but those are in short supply and dwindling and we have to triage those who are to receive them. 

We simply don't have enough. We need your help.

We Are Grateful!

We are pleased to announce grants from PNM and Washington Federal.

SHC was awarded funds as part of PNM's new Vision Grants. This year, PNM narrowed their focus to improve identified areas of importance in New Mexico that help move the state forward together. These include reducing homelessness, increasing community safety, increasing access to affordable housing, and reducing carbon emissions.

The
Washington Federal Foundation's purpose is to facilitate direct giving to community-based nonprofits serving the needs of people with low-and-moderate incomes. Their primary focus areas are housing and community development, social service agencies serving seniors, youth, and families with low-incomes, and financial literacy.

Thank you PNM and WAFD for your very impactful gifts and for helping us end homelessness for good!
