2015 Non-Profit of the Year

Who Are We?

HopeWorks is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization.  Founded in 1985 by a group of concerned leaders, HopeWorks has grown to become the largest provider of services for people experiencing (or at risk of) homelessness in Albuquerque.

As well as meals our day shelter also offers:

  • A mail room.
  • A place to shower.
  • Short and long-term storage.
  • A clothing room.
    In addition to the services offered at our day shelter, we also provide:
  • Behavioral health services.
  • Assistance in employment.
  • Help in rapidly placing individuals and families in their own homes.

During the last fiscal year, over 10,000 individuals came to HopeWorks for our services.  HopeWorks’ comprehensive service array is able to help those most at risk of homelessness, including those with severe and persistent mental illnesses, substance abuse problems, military veterans, women and families fleeing domestic violence, and the medically fragile.  Hope is at the center of everything we do.

What We Want To Accomplish

Our mission is to assist people who are experiencing homelessness or near-homelessness by providing resources, opportunities, and hope. We aim to end homelessness, one person, and one family at a time. No one is turned away.  We treat everyone with dignity and respect, and most importantly, we offer them hope for a better tomorrow.
