The City of Albuquerque and partners at the Westside Emergency Housing Center (WEHC) remind everyone to take precautions and remain safe as temperatures drop. The shelter remains open 24/7 to welcome single men and women who need a safe place to stay. Shuttles to and from the facility are available from different locations around town.

“We want to make sure everyone can get out of the cold and into a warm, safe place,” said Mayor Keller. “We expanded the Westside Emergency Housing Center so it’s open year-round to provide beds and meals to people without homes. Heading into winter, the team is working hard to welcome anyone experiencing homelessness.”

”As temperatures begin to drop, we encourage anyone who needs safe shelter to utilize the Westside Emergency Housing Center,” said Lisa Huval, Deputy Director of Housing and Homelessness for the Department of Family and Community Services.

The City expanded the WEHC into a year-round shelter in 2018 and now offers three meals a day. It offers a welcoming environment to single adult men and women experiencing homelessness in Albuquerque. Shuttle pick up and drop off information can be found at cabq.gov/wehc.

Call 311 if you see or know of someone in need.
