Housing, Education and Supportive Community for Homeless Families
Help Us Bring Them Home
We Have A Matching Gift!
Your donation will be matched dollar for dollar up to $25,000 until the end of the year.
This year we received 68 applications for 13 openings in the fall class and our community is full with 19 families. Your support in 2015 helped us serve 29 families with 67 children - all receiving comprehensive services in a safe, secure community.
Help us make 2016 a success for our current and new families as we strive to break their cycle of poverty and homelessness.
What is Saranam?
Saranam is a 2-year housing and education program for homeless families in Albuquerque, NM. Saranam offers a comprehensive range of services to assist families in transitioning beyond homelessness.
We work with homeless families (a family, for Sananam's purposes, includes at least one adult and one child with a legal connection) who have a desire and the motivation to change their lives to end their homelessness.
Intensive case management
Increasing levels of education
Focus on addressing individual issues
Saranam is unique:
Saranam Values Housing: the foundation for a family's stability
Saranam Values Community: The lack of and loss of community and support systems is an underlying cause of homelessness, and thus relationship-building is crucial to and incorporated into every aspect of this program!
Because building community and building a network for support is so important to the program of Saranam, families are accepted into the program in “classes.” This allows for an immediate peer group and community to form.
Saranam is not a drug/alcohol treatment facility, a domestic abuse shelter, a mental health treatment facility nor do we provide any emergency services/shelter.
