At Joy Junction, we understand that there is a variety of reasons and circumstances in which men, women, children, and families become homeless. Many times, this reason stems from an unsafe home environment from which one spouse escapes with the children. When residents of Albuquerque are in need of a safe shelter for a night, a week, or a year, Joy Junction is here. We are available 24 hours a day, seven days a week, by calling 800-924-0569.

Whether an individual is escaping an unsafe situation at home or has simply fallen on hard economic times, Joy Junction will provide them with the physical and spiritual necessities to get back on their feet. Our faith-based ministry is dedicated to helping homeless families and individuals find their way back to stability.

For those involved in an abusive relationship and are in need of shelter for the night, Joy Junction has room. For those suffering from loss of employment and are unable to adequately provide for their family, Joy Junction welcomes all to our table. Whatever the circumstances may be, we offer basic necessities for the homeless thanks to the kind generosity of the residents and businesses of Albuquerque.

Unfortunately, we are not able to provide motel vouchers or rental/utility assistance.
