Glimpses of love

church groups

Steelbridge offers a number of volunteer opportunities for church groups to serve the homeless and hurting of Albuquerque. By volunteering, your church group will be fulfilling the words of Jesus in Matthew 25:40: “Truly I tell you, whatever you did for one of the least of these brothers and sisters of mine, you did for me.” Your church group members will see lives transformed and, in the process, see change in their own lives.

Some of the opportunities like the Outreach Program, Short-term Missions and the Steelbridge Chapel Ministry Team, are exclusively for churches. Other opportunities, such as Meal Services and Special Skills and Projects are also available for church groups.

Email or call us to inquire about volunteer opportunities for church groups.

how your church can help


“This is what the Lord says: It is not by force nor by strength, but by My Spirit, says the Lord of Heaven’s Armies." (Zechariah 4:6) 

Prayer is the most important way you and your church can support Steelbridge. Life transformation is a spiritual battle, first and foremost. Please lift up our guests, residents, staff, board, and volunteers in your prayers as a church community.


"Real religion, the kind that passes muster before God the Father, is this: Reach out to the homeless and loveless in their plight, and guard against corruption from the godless world." (James 1:27)

We offer a number of volunteer opportunities for church groups to serve the homeless and hurting of Albuquerque. Church groups can serve a meal together in the dining room, hand out groceries and hot soup with our outreach program, or help in other areas of the Mission.

Give Financially

"If you help the poor, you are lending to the LORD--and He will repay you!" (Proverbs 19:17)

By donating to Steelbridge, your church or group can provide a second chance for men and women in crisis – whether you choose to sponsor meals or a man or woman in our residential recovery programs.

Donate Goods

"Share what you have with others. God takes particular pleasure in acts of worship—a different kind of “sacrifice”—that take place in kitchen and workplace and on the streets." (Hebrews 13:16)

We rely on in-kind donations saving us hundreds of thousands of dollars every year. Your church can sponsor a food or clothing drive as a way to get your members more involved.

Minister in the Chapel

"And how can they know who to trust if they haven’t heard of the One who can be trusted? And how can they hear if nobody tells them?" (Romans 10:14)

Steelbridge holds services in our chapel. Your church group can lead worship and bless our guests through singing, drama, preaching, and the reading of Scripture. To join the Chapel Ministry Team, email or call us at 505.346.4673.
