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. 

brand new 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.

women in crisis center

We are excited to announce the grand opening of our Women In Crisis Center (WICC) located at our new Resource Center at 2021 2nd Street NW. The WICC welcomes homeless and at-risk women and their children into an enclosed, nurturing, and safe environment during the day. Caring staff and volunteers offer a lifeline during a time of crisis. Whether homeless for some time, newly homeless, or on the verge homelessness, women of all ages and mothers with children are greeted with love and understanding.

Restoration Programs

Did you know there are about 120 organizations in Albuquerque that provide food to hungry people?

The Albuquerque Rescue Mission exists to end homelessness for anyone who wants a better life. We are focused on seeing lives changed by the power of Jesus Christ. He can forgive the most shameful sin. He can restore the most hardened heart. Jesus makes people new. 

Yes, we feed hungry people every day. Each year, we serve over 300,000 meals. A meal is temporary. A meal has no power to liberate anyone from destructive addictions. A meal cannot restore a family. 

The Albuquerque Rescue Mission's recovery programs for men and women are making a life-transforming difference in the lives of hurting people in Albuquerque.

They are offered FREE of charge to our guests.

Call 505.346.4673 now to talk to us about our programs.

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 22 months - in Albuquerque.
