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.
