more than just a meal







new life

The Albuquerque Rescue Mission has been serving the homeless, hungry, and struggling for over 60 years.


Since 1954, the Mission has provided meals, shelter, and medical care that lead to residential programs that offer men and women the opportunity to transform their lives.


We exist to end homelessness in Albuquerque for anyone who wants a better life. 

changed lives


Our free residential programs provide drug and alcohol recovery, job training, continuing education, and Biblical discipleship to men and women. We are dedicated to teaching the skills necessary for a life transformed.


The Albuquerque Rescue Mission's residential programs operate longer than any other of their kind - 12 to 18 months - in Albuquerque.

WINTER Shelter NOW OPEN

We provide emergency shelter daily at our downtown location with separate facilities for men and women.


During the winter, the Albuquerque Rescue Mission operates a Winter Shelter. The Shelter is open November through March. For the safety of our guests, there are separate male and female sleeping areas. Families with children have their own sleeping quarters.
