Success starts with a home, education, and community

We help families become stable and self-sufficient.

Saranam is an innovative, transitional living program in Albuquerque, New Mexico. Unlike shelters or group homes, we use a two-generational approach to solve the problems that create the cycle of homelessness – poverty, lack of support, and isolation.

Families live in our community for up to two years. They get a home of their own, education, and intensive case management.  And our program works. With their basic needs met, families can focus on pursuing higher educational goals and learning how to live independently, improve parenting skills, develop community-building skills, find stable employment, and enjoy healthier lives.

Saranam provides:

  • Safe housing and living necessities
  • Education for children and adults
  • Intensive case management
  • Supportive community
  • Career guidance
  • Life skills training for children and adults

77% of families who exit Saranam have permanent, stable living situations and can support themselves.

Our two-generational approach

We offer intergenerational educational support and specialized life skills. By working with parents and children together, we create stronger relationships, economic stability, well-being, and brighter futures for everyone.
