Hey everyone! I wanted to share with you about a cause that I care a lot about. People experiencing homelessness in Albuquerque endure the weather, violence, and many other hardships. Without a place to call home, and often with out a hot meal, people endure the harsh reality of living on the streets everyday. Please join me in helping them by supporting HopeWorks. HopeWorks offers comprehensive services to people experiencing homelessness. From food to housing, your donation will go a long way toward making a difference in someones life.
