New initiative, ‘Homeless Vision 2018’ to provide better housing, treatment

Albuquerque’s homeless population will soon have a new place to turn for help. 

After touring a Texas facility that provides job training, housing, health care and substance abuse treatment to homeless citizens there, Mayor Keller decided to create a similar space in Albuquerque. 

They’re getting help from the greater Albuquerque Business Alliance. 

“Homeless Vision 2018 would create one centralized facility in a safe place, a safe place somewhere where all the services can be located,” a city spokesperson said.

Officials say one possible location for the facility is a now vacant lot near the Metropolitan Detention Center.
