As a nonprofit charitable organization, a group must meet certain criteria and obtain paperwork that states the approval of nonprofit status. Joy Junction is a 501(c)(3) faith-based church charitable organization dedicated to serving the needs of the homeless population of Albuquerque, New Mexico.
At Joy Junction, we rely on the kind generosity of individuals and corporations throughout New Mexico to help us continue our outreach ministry. Each day we serve about 300 people including 80 children; over 100,000 meals are provided to the homeless in Albuquerque every year. Women, children, and families in need are accepted regardless of their race, national origin, sexual orientation, sex, age, color, or religion.
We are committed to providing for the basic physical needs as well as the spiritual needs of the homeless. Our faith-based ministry strives to help adults return to society as active, functional members able to assist others in similar situations. Whether this process takes a few days or a year, our guests may stay with us as long as necessary including a stay in our long-term transitional housing.
In addition to our in-house outreach ministry members, Joy Junction also collaborates with other nonprofit charitable organizations to help the homeless as completely as possible. Some of these charitable organizations include:
- Albuquerque Rescue Mission
- Albuquerque Opportunity Center
- Other rescue organizations/homeless shelters in town
