This Family's Homelessness Has Ended for Good!

We don’t always realize the struggles that our families have to overcome in order to get successfully and permanently housed. One of our participants, Eddie, has had to overcome a complicated divorce, a custody battle, substance use issues, transportation, and child care to finally get to a place of stability for himself and his family.
 
In the spring of 2017, Eddie found himself homeless and without any resources when his ex-wife left with all their property including their mobile home. Eddie soon learned that his ex-wife had not hooked up electricity or water to the mobile home and his five children had been living in these conditions for over a year. In treatment, unemployed, and living with friends, he did not have the resources to provide support for the children or to come up with the filing fees required for seeking custody.
 
Not one to give up easily, Eddie started hitchhiking to parenting classes. With the encouragement of the social worker and his friends he finally decided to seek custody of the children and was awarded full custody within a few months. The social worker at his parenting class referred them to SHC’s Permanent Supportive Housing program at Chuska Apartments in Gallup. The program provides housing and supportive services for families that have experienced chronic homelessness. They qualified for housing at Chuska and have been stably housed in a three-bedroom apartment since fall of 2018.

Everyday Heroes

Here at SHC we work every day towards ending homelessness for good. We are proud that we have built a solid team of individuals that believe in providing New Mexicans with permanent and supportive housing. In this line of work, everyday is different. Our participants have different needs and situations and we are happy to assist them on their journey to housing. It is incredible seeing how having a safe and secure home allows freedom to our participants. They no longer have to worry about where they are going to stay, they can focus on employment, family, and their health. 

While every team member gives 110% every day, today we are putting the spotlight on Carly Miller, Housing & Services Coordinator.
