Amen,
Let's do this Albuquerque!!!! Let's help change our city and help peoples lives!!!!
Thank you for hosting the community last night and sharing all the great work you are doing in our community!
Hey which courses are offered at steelbridge,I want to study human resource there if it is there
No one should be hungry!! ❤️😔
I'm alarmed at the harshness of the new City Council rules imposed on pedestrians and motorists, not allowing them to talk to each other? I hope this is ruled illegal in court when the ACLU sues the City. The other day a young woman with a baby (named Elijah - from the Bible) was standing at the corner of a quiet ABQ street, selling bottles of water. I gave her my good wishes and some $. What if someone saw me talk to her and give her money - would they "tattle" and call police? This also gives abusive cops just another excuse to hassle citizens. When the shelters have enough available beds on any given night for the 6,000 homeless requiring a safe, warm place to sleep and food to eat, then we can address the CC's alleged "local and federal statistics"... What if someone is asking for directions? What about people collecting for a funeral or other immediate need charity? The solution for ABQ is well-paying jobs, rising wages, lower rents, etc. No easy fix.

Want to help a homeless person in a way that's transformational instead of temporary? Our residential programs help our clients live abundant lives.

The Albuquerque Rescue Mission was founded 1954 as Albuquerque Gospel Mission. Arthur Fleischer and his wife moved from Chicago to Albuquerque specifically to start the Mission after being powerfully impacted by their involvement in the Pacific Garden Mission. AGM was a ministry to the poor and homeless men and women of Albuquerque. A house on First Street was the original site, providing ministry, shelter, food, and clothing. A building and property on Second Street was donated 1960, by Local Union Number 611 International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers. The Albuquerque Rescue Mission operated from that location for nearly four decades, with a separate dormitory building added in 1973. RESTORATION CENTER In 1999, a 24,000 square foot Restoration Center was opened. It included a Learning Center, a Courtyard, Dining facilities, a Donation Processing Center, and multiple areas for Emergency Shelter. STEELBRIDGE In 2017, the Albuquerque Rescue Mission became Steelbridge. The mission of "transforming lives through the power of God's love" remains the focus of our work. The expansion of Residential Programs at our downtown campus reflects our response to the changing needs our city. Capacity for housing men and women in our programs tripled. Today, there is room for 72 men and 26 women in the New Life Program for men and Women's Center of Hope. Our emergency services for the public have increased and been relocated to just outside the downtown area, at the Steelbridge Resource Center (2021 Second Street NW). In a strategic move to reduce duplication of services, we collaborate with The Rock (2400 Second Street NW) to provide meals for the homeless and those suffering from food insecurity. The needs of our community have changed since 1954. We've changed to meet them. The work we do is needed now, more than ever. Albuquerque Rescue Mission became a member of the Association of Gospel Rescue Missions in 1960, an association of over 300 missions in cities across the nation with the common purpose of reaching people with a message of salvation and deliverance through Jesus Christ. Albuquerque Rescue Mission is led by a volunteer governing Board of Directors drawn from the community of Albuquerque. Arthur Fleischer served as the Executive Director of the Albuquerque Rescue Mission until 1969, followed by Seamon Krup between 1969-1981, Rev. Stanley Gourd between 1981-1989, Mark Fairchild between 1989-2004 and Pastor John Hill, the current Executive Director, began in 2004.

NEW LIFE Transforming lives through the power of God's love. We live out this mission by sharing the hope and love of Christ while meeting basic needs and offering long-term solutions that empower people toward a more stable future. Since 1954, we have been a source of hope for our neighbors in crisis: the addicted, homeless, hungry, and abused. We provide food, shelter, clothing, counseling, residential programs, and other resources that offer men and women the opportunity to transform their lives. We receive $0 in government funding. Everything we do is because of the generosity of people like you. We serve dinner - Monday, Wednesday, Friday, and Saturday - from 4:00 PM to 5:15 PM to anyone who is hungry in collaboration with The Rock (2400 Second Street NW). We provide shelter to Women and Children at our Resource Center at 2021 Second Street NW. We also provide overnight shelter from November through March.

Mission: Mission Statement Steelbridge exists to show the restoring love of Jesus to hopeless and homeless men, women and children resulting in spiritual and emotional healing and life long discipleship to Jesus. To do this we provide food, shelter, clothing, training, education, mentoring and Biblical counsel.

Have you ever heard someone make reference to the homeless by saying, “Why don’t they just get a job.” For someone living on the streets, this is not an easy task. There are some basic things you need when job hunting, including an identification card, phone access, internet access, a mailing address and reliable transportation. Not only that, but the homeless have the stereotypical stigma that follows them, the perception that they are drug addicts or lazy. When you combine these factors, employment isn’t easily obtainable.
For the people entering Steelbridge, employment is a viable option once they graduate the program. Part of their transformation includes life skills development, job training and access to continuing education. We help provide the tools they need to have success in the workforce.

The sick and vulnerable become homeless, and the homeless become sicker and more vulnerable. Studies found that up to 25% of the homeless suffered severe mental illness at some point. The average life expectancy for the homeless is between 42 and 52 years. Life expectancy for the general public is 80.
At Steelbridge, we help these people find the care they need, whether it be substance abuse services, mental health services, transportation or support. To learn more visit our website at: https://www.mysteelbridge.org

mailchi.mp As you probably know, the crime rate in Albuquerque is among the highest in the nation per capita. Among the contributors of this unflattering statistic, is the abundant homeless population that is prevalent in our city. It’s unfortunate but true that a higher homeless presence leads to a higher c...

At Steelbridge we offer the homeless meals, clothing, shelter and much more, yet there is something else we provide that is a key to the process of life transformation. While they are with us, they have an opportunity to foster meaningful relationships, something that homeless people are disproportionately likely to be missing out on in the streets. For many of them, it’s a lonely, solitary reality where close friendships and loving relationships are non-existent.

Is is estimated in some studies, that up to 25% of the homeless suffer from some form of serious mental health disorder. By comparison, only about 4% of U.S. adults have been diagnosed with a serious mental illness. In New Mexico, the estimated number of homeless ranges around 2,500, which means that those with serious mental health disorders is approximately 625, a staggering amount. Some of the causes include depression, bipolar disorder, schizophrenia, anxiety disorders and substance abuse disorders. Unfortunately, the percentage of those 625 people who seek out or receive professional treatment is extremely low.
At STEELBRIDGE, we offer all of our residents professional counseling using a Christ-centered and loving approach. We also provide referrals for more advanced treatment to those who need it.

28% of homeless adults are severely mentally ill, 22% are physically disabled and 15% have suffered physical abuse due to domestic violence. But instead of being recognized as victims who deserve our support and compassion, many times they are treated like criminals instead. They are in need of help, not ridicule.

One of the challenges that the homeless face every single day is meeting their basic needs. Where can they find their next meal? Where do they go to get fresh drinking water? How can they replace their tattered garments with suitable clothing? Where are they going to sleep? While most of us take these needs for granted, for the homeless, it’s an endless quest.
For those that enter the doors of Steelbridge, they are supplied with several changes of clothing including socks, underwear and shoes.They are provided three nutritious meals a day and plenty of fresh drinking water to quench their thirst. And as night descends upon them, they have access to their own comfortable bed to enjoy a good night’s rest.
And everything is at no cost to them

Can you imagine being all alone, day after day, with no one around to share your feelings? Can you imagine being in an emotional void, a dark place teeming with numbness, a sense of nothingness, lack of excitement, lack of purpose, hopelessness, isolation, and feelings of being disconnected, lost or confused? Can you imagine the damage to your self esteem?
With your help, we can rescue those that are experiencing this existence and pull them from the darkness, into a loving and caring world. A world where friendships and love are abundant, and loneliness is a thing of the past.

homelessness can be caused by physical, sexual and emotional trauma, such as domestic violence. Steelbridge provides solutions to help people overcome that trauma and focus on restoring their life.

A home provides roots, identity, security, a sense of belonging and a place of emotional well being. A home is where we go to get away from the hustle and bustle of everyday life. A home is a place where we can just be ourselves, a stable foundation, a sanctuary. Home is where we go when we want to feel safe from the world. Home is where we go to spend quality time with our loved ones. A home is a place where we build dreams or memories. Home is a reflection of our lives.
Now imagine being without a home. It’s a hard thing to imagine, yet for over a half million people in the U.S., it's a reality.
With your help, we can transform the lives of these people one at a time. Visit our website at mysteelbridg.org to learn more.

In the past five decades, thousands of people with nowhere else to turn have passed through the doors of Steelbridge for a hot meal or other services. Each and every one of them has a unique testimonial to share, in most cases, a story of despair describing the tragic circumstances that led them to our door. Stories describing a health crisis, or loss of employment, or addiction to drugs and alcohol. Some have been on the street for years, some have been homeless for decades.

Steelbridge provides solutions to break the cycles of poverty, addiction and trauma.

How many times have we passed by a homeless person and averted our eyes or changed our path to avoid them altogether. Perhaps we didn't do it out of fear or disgust like some do, but because we felt that if we acknowledge them, then we would have to help them in some way.
The fact is, by ignoring their presence, we missed out on the opportunity to offer assistance to a fellow human being. Not by giving them handouts, but by offering them a simple act of kindness with a smile or a hello. Gestures like these can inspirit someone who is lost in a lonely place. The homeless have feelings too.

Trauma has emerged as an important public health concern because it has long-term adverse effects upon physical health and mental health. Trauma contributes to chronic health and behavioral health conditions. People in our community, especially those with mental illness and substance use disorders, experience trauma in complex ways. Steelbridge is a trauma-informed organization that works to eliminate policies and practices that might traumatize and re-traumatize its clients. Steelbridge develops policies and practices that promote safety, trust, transparency, collaboration, mutuality, empowerment, and choice among people seeking help. This approach is reliant on scientific evidence for guidance and decision-making.

Housing First is the most discussed method in terms of combating homelessness, but we question the effectiveness of this solution. By simply providing housing, we're not addressing the root cause of the issue. In order to achieve a practical solution, we must first focus on uncovering the causes. Only then can we develop a long term plan to restore lives.

For every visible homeless person there are hundreds that we do not see. Homelessness affects individuals of all ages, genders, and ethnicity. We often consider homelessness to be a result of poverty, lack of housing or government support, and economic challenges such as raising a child alone; however, homelessness can also be caused by physical, sexual and emotional trauma. Trauma is most often the root cause of homelessness, and in most cases results from a series of losses, so severe and betraying, that these individuals cannot even tolerate the idea of hope. At Steelbridge, we help people discover that there is hope.

Trauma can lead to homelessness and then homelessness itself can lead to further trauma. It's a vicious circle, a cycle that's difficult to break. At Steel bridge we provide life transforming solutions to break the cycles of poverty, addiction and trauma. Solutions to end that vicious circle.

Once on the streets, an individual with substance abuse issues has little chance of getting housing as they face insurmountable barriers to obtaining health care, including substance abuse treatment services and recovery supports. Steelbridge helps break those barriers so the homeless are able to get the treatment they need to start the transformation process.

Our Story

People struggle with how to help a homeless person in a way that is transformational instead of temporary. Our long-term, Christ-centered residential programs provide whole-person restoration so that our clients can live abundant lives.

“Ending homelessness by permanently transforming lives through the love of Jesus Christ.” We live out this mission by sharing the hope and love of Christ while meeting basic needs and offering long-term solutions that empower people toward a more stable future.

Since 1954, we have been a source of hope for our neighbors in crisis: the addicted, homeless, hungry, and abused.

We serve dinner - Monday, Wednesday, Friday, and Saturday - from 4:00 PM to 5:15 PM to anyone who is hungry in collaboration with The Rock (2400 Second Street NW). We provide shelter to Women and Children at our Resource Center at 2021 Second Street NW.

If you are in crisis or know someone who is, you are welcome at our Resource Center (505.554.2780).

The needs of our community have changed since 1954. We've changed to meet them. The work we do is needed now, more than ever.

With the adaptation to these new challenges we wanted our name to reflect more than just a soup kitchen, and Steelbridge was born!

Why Steelbridge? What does it mean?

Steel: (Old High German stahal), related to "standing fast," "to stand, place, be firm."

Steel is created when coal and iron are heated in a furnace to remove all impurities. Coal and Iron are the streets on the north and south side of our downtown campus.

Bridge: 1. A structure carrying a road or path across or over an obstacle. 2. Something that is intended to reconcile or form a connection between two things.
