Saranam ends homelessness and poverty in families.
As Albuquerque emerges into a new decade, we continue to be confronted by homelessness. The daily interactions and the newly reported HUD data must be addressed. New Mexico has the largest percentage of increase in homelessness in the nation from 2018 to 2019 and The New Mexico Coalition to End Homelessness reports that Albuquerque alone has 700 families with children who were homeless last year. Albuquerque Public Schools reports homelessness is experienced by 3,000 children at any given time over the course of a school year.
We can do better.
Saranam is an organization dedicated to ending homelessness for families by offering a combination of housing, education and community allowing families to break the cycle of homelessness and create empowered futures.
Since 2004, Saranam has served 162 families in Albuquerque: including 184 adults and 344 children. These lives are permanently altered for the better. Saranam families exit the program with a nearly 80% success rate. These successes include permanent, safe, stable living situation, completion of a degree or certificate, and newly forged relationships and community supports.
Investing in Saranam and the lives of our families is vital to our community.
