City Councilor Borrego Meets With and Tours St. Martin's Hopeworks

Hopeworks assists people who are experiencing homelessness by providing resources, opportunities, and HOPE.

District 5 City Councilor Cynthia Borrego was honored to meet with the Hope Works Board and tour the St. Martin's Homeless Shelter. Hopeworks facility impressed Councilor Borrego though it is in need of donations to continue to serve the Albuquerque’s homeless populations. Last year, Hopeworks prepared and served over 142,038 meals to people in need. The day shelter is the heart of the agency. Clients are offered a meal, shower, clothing, and storage.  Most importantly, clients can connect to a vast array of wraparound services (mental/behavioral health, employment, housing) designed to move them out of homelessness. Hopeworks also provides a mail service address to their clients. On average, the day shelter serves approximately 8,100 duplicated clients per year.

The day shelter serves many with limited resources.  If you can, please donate to the shelter.  It is greatly appreciated and has far reaching effects on peoples lives. 

The following are items always needed by the day shelter:

  • Toiletries (small soaps, shampoos, razors, toothbrushes, toothpaste, feminine products)
  • Sunscreen
  • Towels
  • Men's shoes and socks
  • Underwear
  • Hats
