organizations that serve people experiencing homelessness, including
Albuquerque Healthcare for the Homeless (AHCH), Barrett Foundation, Haven
House, the Salvation Army, Joy Junction, and Roadrunner Food Bank. The
event was featured in an article in the "Life in New Mexico" section of
the Nov. 6 Albuquerque Journal.
The organization was founded in 1993, by Joseph Saavedra, and the
Honorable Diane Dal Santo, retired district court judge. Since
conception, Pennies for the Homeless has blossomed into an annual High
Tea & Fashion Show with the same initiative in mind; improving the
quality of life for people who are homeless through the partnership of
AHCH and 25 other organizations.
