Residents lauded for donations to housing fund

Mayor Tim Keller, the Department of Family and Community Services and the Supportive Housing Coalition thanked area residents Tuesday for making online donations to the One Albuquerque Housing Fund, allowing them to move two formerly-homeless people into apartments.

bright spotThe city used the donations to pay application fees, security deposits and two months of rent for two individuals who had been chronically homeless for nearly a decade and are now in apartments where they access supportive services, city officials said in a news release.

The city made the initial $8,000 payment to the Supportive Housing Coalition, which provides assistance and services that help end homelessness.

The coalition provides affordable, permanent and supportive housing to individuals and families in New Mexico.

The housing fund has raised more than $17,000 since its inception.

” … It’s called the One Albuquerque Housing Fund for a reason: we can’t do it without all of the individuals in our city who see those orange signs and decide they want to make a difference with a donation,” Keller said.
