  • Request for Proposals: Operations of the Westside Emergency Housing Center -- Proposals accepted until Friday April 12, 2024

The City of Albuquerque, Department of Health Housing and Homelessness, hereby requests proposals to conduct daily operations and/or services for target populations, in a manner consistent with Housing First low barrier principles at the Westside Emergency Housing Center (WEHC). The WEHC provides congregate shelter for unhoused adults (over the age of 18) per guests’ self-identification as men, women and couples. Guests may bring up to two pets each. The shelter is located approximately 17 miles west of downtown near the Double Eagle Airport, with an approximately 20-minute drive. It is open year-round, 24/7. A tour of the WEHC will be provided at the non-mandatory pre-proposal meeting on March 28, 2024. The WEHC welcomes guests who can independently manage their activities of daily living (ADLs). This low-barrier shelter provides an alternative for people who would otherwise be unsheltered and does not require guests to be clean or sober.

The 2023/2024 winter’s average overnight census has been 575, and average daytime census has been 225. The 2023 summer average overnight census was 425 and average daytime census was 200.  There are eleven dorms, each with an estimated capacity of up to 60 guests each

The contracted operator will be tasked with providing guests with the basic human needs of shelter, food and dignity. Daily tasks will include maintaining order in the operations and providing a respectful and culturally welcoming environment. In addition, Offers to provide specialized services for target populations will be reviewed.

This Request for Proposals provides the option to respond with an Offer to operate either or both of the scopes as described in Section 4.2.1: General On-site Operations Management; and/or Section 4.2.2: Population-Specific Services. A total of up to $4.1 million is available.

At minimum, the scopes described in Section 4.2.1 are essential to operate the WEHC and will take precedence in allocation of the budget.  The Department encourages Offerors to propose initiatives that can leverage funding and services to meet the specialized service needs of populations identified in Section 4.2.2. Identified populations may include elders, medically vulnerable, people living with mental illness, people living with substance use disorders, chronically homeless, newly homeless, among others.
