Access to adequate health care can mean the difference between getting back on your feet, getting sicker, or even dying. For AHCH, health care is housing and both are human rights. AHCH believes all people are entitled to health care, affordable housing, and and adequate income. 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 people experiencing homelessness. AHCH provides critical services to over 5,000 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.
