Wildfires are devastating communities across California, causing more than 300,000 people to evacuate their homes and threatening many more. The Camp Fire in Northern California -- one of three blazing across the state -- is the most destructive in state history. We want to ensure that, if you are in an affected community, you find access to shelter. And if you are looking to help with disaster relief efforts, you know the most effective ways to contribute.

To prevent and reduce homelessness and to increase the quality of life for people with behavioral health issues in New Mexico by creating affordable, supportive housing in partnership with local communities and member agencies.
The Supportive Housing Coalition of New Mexico (SHC-NM) is a statewide nonprofit housing organization incorporated in 1996. Based in Albuquerque, SHC-NM is the leader in affordable, supportive housing for special needs populations in New Mexico.
SHC-NM believes in and practicse the Housing First approach. That means that first we house people and then make sure they have the services they need to be successful in their new home. We do this by providing affordable housing at our properties and by managing rental assistance vouchers for our clients at homes throughout the city. And we work in collaboration with many partners to ensure housing stability. This approach works and not only ends homelessness, it creates stronger neighborhoods and saves the community money.
