Blazing the trail
In 2020, HopeWorks will begin construction of a 42-unit, single-site permanent supportive housing project next to our existing Day Shelter on 3rd St.
This project will be the first of its kind in New Mexico, providing permanent housing to the most vulnerable, chronically homeless individuals in Albuquerque, alongside supportive services designed to keep them stable and housed.
“Single site” refers to a best practice model where clients have access to all of the supports they need (mental/behavioral health services, therapy, basic needs, medical care, etc.) on site where they live.
Permanent supportive housing is nationally recognized as a proven solution to end chronic homelessness. HopeWorks’ goal is to house the most vulnerable individuals living on the streets, who may have lost hope and a sense of belonging.
This venture represents a unique and bold collaboration between HopeWorks, The City of Albuquerque, Bernalillo County, the National Housing Trust Fund, and Mortgage Finance Authority (MFA). We are excited to also be working with YES Housing, Mullen Heller Architects, and Consensus Planning on this project.
This is a pivotal first step.
