In our collaboration with the City of Albuquerque, doing Rapid Re-Housing, the ABQ FaithWorks Housing program was able to go and visit with the APS McKinney-Vento staff and see their beautiful facility. We are excited about the work being done at McKinney-Vento and are eager to collaborate with them.
APS McKinney-Vento program supports homeless children, youth, and their families. They go beyond providing immediate assistance and focus on addressing the underlying causes of homelessness. Through initiatives such as educational support, counseling services, a well-stock warehouse of anything these families might need, and access to healthcare, McKinney-Vento ensures that families facing homelessness receive the holistic care they need to rebuild their lives.
Through this collaboration, ABQ FaithWorks and APS McKinney-Vento are creating a synergistic approach that meets the immediate needs of homeless families and empowers them to regain stability and independence. By working together, sharing knowledge, and coordinating efforts, we can provide a more comprehensive and effective support system for homeless families.
The collaboration between ABQ FaithWorks and APS McKinney-Vento is a shining example of the power of teamwork in tackling the complex issue of homelessness. By leveraging their respective programs, resources, and expertise, we are creating a comprehensive support system for homeless families in Albuquerque. Together, ABQ FaithWorks and APS McKinney-Vento are a beacon of hope, proving that when organizations come together, they can impact the lives of vulnerable individuals and families.
Special thanks to Cristal and Aaron for hosting us.
