St. Labre Mission
The homeless throughout our region are the “Forgotten Ones”. In Albuquerque last year, according to the New Mexico Coalition to End Homelessness, there were approximately 619 homeless individuals staying in shelters, 408 staying in transitional housing, and 144 sleeping outside or in a place not meant for human habitation. This includes both adults and children. Many are also unaware that Albuquerque has its’ own homeless tent city, located along 1st St. SW between Coal Ave. and Iron Ave. The number of tents seen day-to-day depends on weather conditions. Our parish is starting a homeless outreach program called the ‘St Labre Mission’. St. Labre Mission is launching in January 2015, and needs volunteers to make this pilot program a success.
