An asylum family (identities protected) poses with their new van and Julio Salazar of Auto Angels. The van was purchased by a generous ABQFW donor.

November, 2021. Asylum seekers relocating to Albuquerque face many struggles such as recoveries from trauma; cultural adjustments; and finding housing, education and work. Navigating the expansive city to get to school and work adds only one more challenge to overcome.


Recently, an anonymous ABQFW supporter learned that this was where they could have a positive impact on the lives of an ABFW asylum family. Purchasing a vehicle through Auto Angels NM, the donor contributed the much-needed van that now provides transportation for the family.


"I think I don't have many words to describe th[e] whole amount of gratitude we have," said the new owners. "You make this world a better place for many people. Thank you for being sympathetic...you inspire us to be more caring human beings."


This caring-in-action is an example of how ABQ FaithWorks's partners and supporters come together to welcome strangers into community. Support can be made today with financial donations (here), or by donating a vehicle (here).


[This position has been filled.]


ABQ FaithWorks seeks a dynamic executive director to lead the faith collaborative in safely housing asylum seekers and people experiencing homelessness, and to integrate them into healthy communities.


Versatility, compassion and calm visionary organizational skills are the hallmarks of ABQFW's next leader. The executive director oversees a staff of three to executive the housing/homelessness program and the asylum seeker program.


This exciting position involves leading a network of congregations and volunteers to provide assistance to people in need.
