The Albuquerque Public School system estimates that approximately 5,000 children are homeless in the city. At Joy Junction, we are dedicated to providing as many of these children and their parents/legal guardians with food, clothing, shelter, and safety. Each night we house 60-80 children and their families in an effort to help them get back on their feet.
Feed a Child
Because Joy Junction is a nonprofit charitable organization, we receive no funding from federal, state, or local agencies. Our charity for kids and adults of Albuquerque is funded solely by your generous contributions. For example, by donating only $2/day, you can feed a child.
At Joy Junction, we offer you the opportunity to see your donation in action as well as the chance to volunteer your time personally. Contact us for time and location information so you can help bring a smile to the faces of homeless families in Albuquerque.
Help Us Create a Normal Life
In addition to the basic needs of the family, Joy Junction also strives to help create as normal of a life as possible for children in the shelter. This means providing the necessities for school including clothes, shoes, lunch, and other essential accessories for learning. Just because these children and their families are homeless does not mean they should be denied the opportunity and experience of a proper education.
To make our charity for kids and adults possible, we rely on the generosity of individuals, families, and businesses throughout the city. If you are considering the opportunity to make a donation to our children’s charity, contact Joy Junction for information on ways to contribute your time, gifts, and money.
