Homelessness will make you sick and can kill you.

The statistics are grim. In the City of Albuquerque, a minimum of 1,318 people reported experiencing homelessness on January 23, 2017 per the New Mexico Coalition to End Homelessness Point-In-Time Count, and per Albuquerque Health Care for the Homeless (AHCH) and community best estimates, at least 16,000 persons – approximately 2.3% of Bernalillo County residents – will experience homelessness during the year.

When people experience homelessness access to adequate health care can mean the difference between getting back on your feet, getting sicker, or even dying.  AHCH believes health care is a human right and that all people are entitled to health care. We serve people in many stages of homelessness including those living in cars or motels, couch surfing, on the street, in shelters and in transitional housing. Having access to a doctor and medical care to take care of chronic conditions like diabetes, high blood pressure, chronic pain, is essential.

For over three decades, Albuquerque Health Care for the Homeless (AHCH) has served our community as the only health care organization in Central New Mexico dedicated exclusively to providing services to homeless people. AHCH provides critical services to over 7,000 men, women and children every year. By addressing the health-related causes of homelessness, AHCH makes it possible for people to find solutions to end their homelessness.

The Spring Equinox is a time of equality and balance. It is a time of new beginnings.

Today is National Native HIV/AIDS Awareness Day. For the past 11 years, groups across the country have banded together to raise awareness among the more than 560 federally recognized tribal nations. New Mexico is home to 23 of those tribes. Observed annually on the Spring Equinox, NNHAAD is designed to encourage Native Americans across the U.S. to get educated, get tested, and get involved in HIV prevention, care, and treatment.

LGBT youth may face negative reactions from family when they come out—many are forced to leave home. This population also has a higher risk of violence, victimization, etc., making access to trauma-informed care critical. #VisualizeHomelessness Learn more: https://t.co/C3f8qjTZ2m
