How much will Mission services cost me?

There is never a charge for the services provided by the Mission. We serve hundreds of thousands of meals each year and provide thousands of articles of clothing and nights of shelter all at no cost to our guests or program participants.

The Mission receives no Federal, State, City, or United Way funding for any of our year round programs. We are supported by hundreds of caring and compassionate people who are concerned about the quality of life in our city, for everyone who would call Albuquerque home.

The Mission offers its help to anyone regardless of race, creed, color. religious affiliation, or sexual preferences.

Winter Shelter

From November 15th through March 15th each year, emergency winter overnight shelter is available for men and women and families with children age 10 years old and under. If you need any of these services please call us at 505-346-4673 for more information.


I saw a homeless man holding a sign by the road? What can I do?

So many times our hearts are broken for people we see each day in our city. Whether they be on the side of the road with a sign or sitting in an alley trying to stay warm and dry, there is something inside of us that reacts to the apparent suffering. The staff at the Mission has been helping people with serious problems for decades and we have the right types of services and programs which can help them get back on their feet.

We strongly recommend that you do not take any homeless or apparently homeless person to your home for any reason. We do recommend that you guide them to come the Mission for food and help.

The Mission provides handy wallet cards free of charge with a list of our services- meal times- hours and a map to the Mission.

If you would like to pick some of these cards up to carry with you.
Please stop by the Mission at:
525 Second St. SW - Albuquerque
Monday - Friday from 8:00 a.m. - 4:30 p.m.

As always, by supporting the Mission, you are also helping us meet the needs of those who come to us for help.
