Tough economic times, addictions, and abuse are just a few of the reasons why an individual or family may end up on the streets without a place to call their own. Homelessness is a serious issue that needs to be addressed, and charitable organizations like Joy Junction are dedicated to providing for the basic physical and spiritual needs of the homeless.
Who We Are
Joy Junction is a 501(c)(3) faith-based church ministry that offers emergency and short-term essentials such as food, clothing, counseling, transportation, shelter to homeless women, children, and families throughout Albuquerque. Our guests can also receive an array of other services for their spiritual and emotional needs. We believe in giving the homeless a Hand Up, not a handout, to help them get back on their feet.
Who We Accept
Anyone who is in need of our assistance is welcome to enter the shelter and stay for as long as necessary. We will not turn anyone away on the basis of sex, sexual orientation, race, color, age, national origin, or religion.
What We Accept
Because we are a nonprofit, donations-only charitable organization, we receive no federal, state, or local funding. Our entire program is funded by the generous donations of individuals, businesses, and churches in and around Albuquerque. To continue our homeless outreach mission, we gladly accept any and every donation an individual is willing to contribute.
How You Can Help
If you are willing and able to make a donation to our charity, you may do so in a variety of ways including:
- Monetary gifts
- Volunteered time and talent
- Clothing, food, cars, household items, hygiene products, linens, furniture
