Please join in the celebration on Sunday, Oct. 24,for a jazz lunch and silent auction, at St. Clair Winery and Bistro, 901 Rio Grande Blvd NW, Albuquerque, 11:00 am to 2:00 pm.   

Tickets are available at the door.  You can pay with credit card, check or cash.

St. Martin's employs 50 people, including my wife Karen. She has been part of the day shelter's operations for 18 of the organization's 25 years of existence and currently works as a client advocate.  "People who are homeless need supportive services, including housing, to achieve the quality of life every person should have.  St. Martin's provides these services," said Karen.

In its new Web site, St. Martin's talks about its mission.
Our non-profit is unique in the community because of the number of different services we have to meet the needs of individuals and families. We provide shelter/food programs, mental health services, job assistance and other critical programs. The services provided by St. Martin’s stress flexibility, accessibility, and comprehensive care, the qualities necessary to assist individuals and families out of homelessness.
