April 2021: Especially during the pandemic, we have all gone through our closets at least once, tossed the weeded out items into a trash bag and maybe taken them to a donation center. Jackets, socks, jeans, sweaters, belts. Here’s what happens to donations that come to ABQ FaithWorks. Jan Hans, our team lead for donations and her team, go through the bag and get usable items ready for easy distribution to folks who come to the door or to our resident asylum-seeking families. Is this a team you could join? Contact Kaity Parent to join a service team! firstname.lastname@example.org or 505 225 8271.
Friday, March 19, 2021, one of the first residents to move into the City’s Tiny Home Village had been referred to ABQ FaithWorks two years ago by St. Andrew Presbyterian, a member church. This is both a victory for this person who is now housed, and for ABQ FaithWorks who supported this resident in the long journey to housing security. (Photo of homes by Bernalillo County)
