New Westside Emergency Housing Center Bus Route

New route in Southeast Albuquerque provides additional opportunity for individuals in the International District to seek shelter.

ALBUQUERQUE – The Department of Family and Community Services (FCS) announced today that access to the Westside Emergency Housing Center (WEHC) has been made easier for individuals experiencing homelessness in the southeast portion of Albuquerque through its new pick up locations. Pick up times will take place each afternoon for anyone that would like to seek shelter out at the WEHC.

 

“More transportation from the International District to the WEHC often times was challenging for individuals,” stated Mayor Tim Keller. “This new route will provide people access to three meals a day, a warm bed, and a safe place to stay.”
