Today, on this #GivingTuesdayNM
, November 27th, Albuquerque Health Care for the Homeless is again participating in the global day of giving known as#GivingTuesday.
Make sure to give today here as part of AHCH's First Day of Winter annual year-end campaign
AHCH relies on the generous gifts of donors to support the meaningful work that helps our most vulnerable neighbors this time of year. AHCH builds our annual campaign around the First Day of Winter to reinforce how important quality health care is to help people overcome, exit and avoid future homelessness.
The First Day of Winter, December 21st, is a national day to remember and honor those who have died while experiencing homelessness. As temperatures drop, the days get shorter, and the nights get darker and longer, it is a time full of challenges for those experiencing homelessness in our community. We believe that homelessness is unacceptable, and we need your help to end it
