Receiving Area for First Responders

Learn about the Receiving Area for First Responders at the Gateway Center.

What is the Receiving Area for First Responders?

Operated by UNM office of Community Health, the Receiving Area is the place at the Gateway Center where first responders can drop clients off who need help figuring out their next step during evening hours when other offices are closed. Not a medical facility, but a resting place and connection point to needed services. Only first responders may bring clients to the Receiving Area. 

Support staff can help guests: 

An icon of a telephone receiver.  Find the right local shelter option

An illustrated icon of a car in profile.  Get a ride somewhere 

An icon in the shape of a ticket stub that says ticket.  Reunite with family outside Albuquerque
