Grassroots Giving Events

Get a circle of colleagues or friends involved in strategies benefiting AHCH. Use social media, safely host a party, concert, event, and donate the proceeds to AHCH.

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.

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.

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

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

Donating Matters

Cash donations of all sizes matter to helping people in need and carrying out our mission, even if your budget is $5, $10 or $25. Please consider giving monthly or quarterly, it all adds up. Sometimes it’s easier to make smaller donations occasionally rather than one large contribution.

Pushing Through


We focus our Advocacy on the following topics:

  • Access to health care
  • Affordable housing
  • Living income
  • Equity

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.

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.
