Experiences of homelessness are rare, short-lived and non-reoccuring.
To fulfill the MHP vision through a unified voice of advocacy, prevention and Service; and to be an innovative convener, collaborator and educator about homelessness in the community.
We do this through four programs:
- New Mexico Community Voice Mail – free, personal voice mail for all.
- Albuquerque Opportunity Center – a men’s overnight emergency shelter.
- VetTRAN – a transitional housing program for male veterans.
- Respite Care Program – 24-hour bed rest for men in need.
Since AOC opened its doors in 2004, we have provided 5,737 unduplicated individuals with 167,422 bed nights of shelter. In 2011, we helped 769 men: 34% of these men have exited into safe, affordable housing. We have also maintained an occupancy rate above 95%.
