I want to provide healthcare, help, hope, and dignity to a neighbor who is homeless…
and I know the need is more urgent than ever.

Un-Selfie - why we give

Ways to Give

We gratefully accept contributions through a variety of methods. Listed below are the most common ways to make a gift. If you don’t see the information you need, please contact the Development Office at 505-338-8038.

Micro-donors and large donors unite!

At Albuquerque Health Care for the Homeless (AHCH), we look to our community for help in caring for those in need. Donations of all sizes are welcome. Please consider donating even if your budget is $5, $10 or $25. It all adds up and sometimes it’s easier to make smaller donations occasionally rather than one large contribution.

Credit Card.

To make a secure contribution by credit card, you can donate online or call to contribute securely over the phone. We are able to accept gifts on Visa or Master Card.

Cash or Check.

Please make checks payable to Albuquerque Health Care for the Homeless. If sending your contribution, our mailing address is:

Albuquerque Health Care for the Homeless
PO Box 25445
Albuquerque, NM 87125-0445

If you would like to deliver your contribution in person, please call the Development Office at 505-338-8038 for directions and parking info.

Periodic Electronic Funds Transfer (EFT).

By scheduling re-occurring gifts charged to your credit card you provide a consistent income for AHCH, allowing us to spend more dollars on programs and less on printed mailings and other outreach efforts. Automatic giving saves you time. You can pre-select the amount and frequency that you would like us to draft your donation. You decide how frequently you’d like to give: weekly, bi-weekly, monthly, quarterly, or annually.

In-Kind Donations

Critical needs donations are essential to supporting Albuquerque Health Care for the Homeless (AHCH)’s mission to end homelessness. If you are in doubt about your donations, it is always better to call and ask.

You might be surprised to find that Albuquerque Health Care for the Homeless cannot accept:

  1. Anything that plugs in
  2. Medications, even if they are in their original packaging
  3. Food

Lending our voices to end homelessness - Advacate

Advocacy on policy issues is essential to AHCH’s work on behalf of people experiencing homelessness; not just in Albuquerque, but nationally too. AHCH advocates for solutions to the core issues that contribute to homelessness, including: living wages/entitlements, housing, and access to health care. An Advocacy Committee comprised of staff and board members (donors/volunteers) meets regularly to prioritize and plan AHCH’s advocacy activities. Activities include hosting tours of elected officials, reaching out to neighborhood associations, working on cross-agency task forces, speaking at City Council meetings, registering voters and participation in coalitions and professional organizations, lobbying at State Legislature and participation in special initiatives related to Advocacy.

We focus our Advocacy on the following topics

  • Access to health care.
  • Affordable housing.
  • Living income.
  • Equity.
  • Other needed services and resources.
