resource center

We all fall down sometimes. We all encounter trials and difficulties. And in those times, we can curl up in despair—or we can partner with those who will provide strength, encouragement, and hope. The Resource Center (2021 2nd Street NW - next to the Family Dollar) exists to be that outstretched hand; a steady support so people in need can get back on their feet. Guest service members listen, look at each situation objectively, and offer practical, wise steps to help put our guests onto a better path.

The Resource Center was created to help people in crisis navigate available resources, in a spirit of love, encouragement, and hope. When guests meet with a member of the Resource Center, they receive:

  • A one-on-one conversation with someone who will listen to our guest’s story and provide basic pastoral support.

  • Wise counsel about next steps to help improve our guest’s situation, and help them grow emotionally and spiritually.

  • Information about services available from the Resource Center and Community Partners that may be able to provide additional help.

  • Prayer and encouragement.

stories of restoration

The Albuquerque Rescue Mission provides residential recovery programs for both men and women. The New Life Program for men and the Women's Center of Hope have been developed from the perspective that homelessness is both the problem and the symptom of other problems that can range from chronic substance abuse, financial instability, domestic violence, sexual victimization and more. 

The New Life Program and Women's Center of Hope solve the problem of homelessness by providing for the basic needs of each man and woman for a period of 12 to 18 months while they are in recovery and restoration. These services include shelter, meals, clothing, and support. 

Most importantly, our programs offer long-term, practical solutions to the underlying problems related to chronic homelessness through life and employment skills training, continuing education opportunities, single and group counseling, legal aid, job-readiness training and housing placement.

If you or a loved one needs help, call us at 505.346.HOPE (4673) to schedule an appointment.

Our programs are offered FREE of charge.
