HopeWorks is the largest, most comprehensive service provider for people experiencing homelessness in the state of New Mexico. We are a local thought and industry leader, creating access and opportunities for housing the community's most vulnerable. In 1985, the Episcopal community and its leaders founded HopeWorks in response to increases in the number of individuals experiencing homelessness in Albuquerque. At that time, HopeWorks served an average of 50 individuals a day with shelter and a hot morning meal. Now, over 15,000 individuals pass through HopeWorks' doors, seeking services to help them exit their homeless episode. HopeWorks continues to remain an organization founded on hospitality, compassion, and innovation.
Our vision is to end homelessness, one person, one family at a time. With compassion and an innovative sense of purpose, HopeWorks dares to envision an end to every homeless episode we encounter and will work within our comprehensive service array to ensure that individuals remain housed and healthy.
