Hope of the Valley Rescue Mission Founder/CEO Ken Craft and President Rowan Vansleve have embarked on a historic journey cycling across America to spotlight the urgent issue of homelessness. Their 3,500-mile ride from Los Angeles to the White House aims to raise awareness, mobilize support and engage communities in the fight against homelessness.

They stopped in Albuquerque March 25 to discuss homelessness and real solutions with New Mexico Mortgage Finance Authority (MFA) leaders.

The ride and their engagement with local organizations along the way will be featured in a documentary film about their journey and will shed light on the homeless crisis gripping communities across the country.

With over 33 facilities and 2,700 shelter beds, including tiny home villages, shelters and thrift stores, Hope the Mission is on the front lines of providing immediate assistance and long-term solutions.

MFA assisted 4,217 New Mexico households by providing $43.5 million in assistance from the New Mexico Homeowner Assistance Fund program from 2021 through the application submittal end date of March 1, 2024.

The program provided housing grants to income-eligible households experiencing financial hardship associated with the coronavirus pandemic. Robert Leech was one of many New Mexicans who benefitted from the program.

“New Mexicans faced challenging times during the pandemic, and we are thankful that the Homeowner Assistance Fund program was available to help homeowners overcome financial hardships and prevent foreclosures. The program was very impactful by assisting over 4,200 households in our state.” -Isidoro Hernandez, MFA's Executive Director/CEO

MFA's Board of Directors approved the FirstDown Plus loan program at its November meeting, and MFA has allocated $5.5 million from the New Mexico Housing Trust Fund for the program.

“FirstDown Plus is yet another mortgage program we offer to assist New Mexicans with purchasing a home and start building wealth. The higher home prices and interest rates have made homeownership more challenging, and the $15,000 made available under this program will facilitate homeownership for many qualifying New Mexicans. I encourage homebuyers to visit our website and find a participating lender to determine eligibility and start the process.” -Isidoro Hernandez, MFA Executive Director/CEO

If you would like to make a meaningful donation before the end of the year, consider donating to the State Tax Credit Program, which helps build affordable housing across the state. State tax credits are available to individuals and businesses that make donations to the program, and the tax credit is equal to 50% of the donation’s value.

“This program provides an opportunity to help New Mexicans realize their dreams of becoming homeowners. It’s really a win-win, as the individuals or businesses also receive 50% of their donation back in the form of a tax credit from the state.” -Isidoro Hernandez, MFA’s Executive Director/CEO

Donors may be eligible for a federal tax deduction but should consult with their certified public accountant.
