This week, volunteers in Albuquerque are counting homeless individuals. Survey Week happens every two years and gives government officials and service providers a way to measure the issue in the city.
Pastor John Hill from the Albuquerque Rescue Mission shares his insights from nearly 10 years of working downtown with men, women and children who are homeless or struggling to make ends meet. We’ll also hear how nonprofits are working together to bring people from the streets into more stable housing.
NMiF producer Sarah Gustavus also spoke with Dennis R. Plummer (CEO – Heading Home), Jennifer Metzler (Executive Director – Albuquerque Health Care for the Homeless) and John Ames (Supportive Housing Coalition of New Mexico)
