Thank you Albuquerque Health Care for the Homeless for sharing things to know if you are at risk of losing your housing because of failure to pay your rent due to the COVID-19 pandemic!

(Scroll down for English.)

¿En riesgo de desalojo? Qué necesitas saber o hacer?

Hay una moratoria para los inquilinos que no pueden pagar su renta. Hay una moratoria de NM y una moratoria federal de los CDC. Hasta que el Tribunal Supremo de NM dictamine lo contrario, las protecciones de la Moratoria de NM o de la Moratoria de los CDC
pueden servirle, dependiendo de sus circunstancias en particular, para protegerse de ser desalojado por falta de pago de la renta.

Con el fin de protegerse mejor:
• Si cumple con todos los requisitos de la moratoria de los CDC, complete la Declaración Bajo pena de perjurio y déselo a su arrendador. Guarde una copia. Cada adulto en el contrato de renta debe completar el formulario. Para obtener más información sobre cómo obtener el formulario de Declaración de los CDC, vea más abajo.
• Si su arrendador presenta una solicitud de desalojo ante el tribunal, debe ir a la audiencia del tribunal para explicar que actualmente no puede pagar la renta.

Aún así deberá la renta de todos los meses cuando la moratoria termine. Intente negociar un acuerdo por escrito con el arrendador para pagar el alquiler en un plazo determinado y así poder permanecer en su casa cuando la moratoria termine.

--

If you are at risk of losing your housing because of failure to pay your rent due to the COVID-19 pandemic, these are the things you need to know:

There are two moratoriums in place, one by the CDC and one by the New Mexico Supreme Court, that protect your housing status under specific circumstances, should you follow the necessary steps.

In order to best protect yourself:
• If you meet all the requirements of the CDC moratorium, complete the Declaration Under penalty of perjury and give it to your landlord. Keep a copy. Each adult on the lease must complete the form. See
below for more information on how to get the CDC Declaration form.

• If your landlord files in court for eviction, you must go to the court hearing to explain that you are currently unable to pay rent.

You will still owe the rent for all months when the moratorium ends. Try negotiating a written agreement with the landlord to repay the rent over time so you can stay in your home when the moratorium is over.

With winter approaching, homeless shelters face big challenges against coronavirus

"As the country heads into winter and it becomes more difficult for people experiencing homelessness to safely remain outdoors, shelters face a major challenge preparing for the increased demand the drop in temperatures will bring while observing restrictions to prevent coronavirus outbreaks."

"Right now in the country, there's not one city that has enough shelter space for all the homeless people in their community," one advocate said.

The Begay family is an example of how providing housing for people translates to providing healthcare for people. Before they were connected with Heading Home, they lost their housing, employment, and support network. The family was living without electricity or running water. When their new baby was born with critical health challenges, their living conditions did not support the necessary medical equipment to keep him alive. Heading Home received a referral for the family just before Child Protective Services was going to take custody of their baby due to their lack of housing.

DONATE BEFORE IT'S TOO LATE.....DON'T HESITATE TO DONATE........INSTEAD OF THROWING AWAY OTHER PEOPLE'S PROPERTY, WHY CAN'T THOSE THAT RUN THE WEST SIDE, WHO COULD, SHOULD AND/OR WOULD BE BETTER OFF GIVING OTHER PEOPLE'S PROPERTY TO PLACES THAT COULD SHOULD AND WOULD BENEFIT FROM IT MORE, SUCH AS ST. FELIX'S FOOD AND CLOTHING BANK, ST. VINCENT DE PAUL'S, ABUNDANT GRACE FREE STORE, GOODWILL, THE SALVATION ARMY, SAVORS, AND OR OTHER RESALE SHOPS?
Hello I'm homeless...how can u help me out..I'm reaching out to you
Heading Home needs a van that when transporting individuals from the shelter they can properly be seated and secured with a seatbelt for every single individual riding in the van...there is no need to cram 7 to 15 adults and children some sitting on the floor of the van with no seat belt and Management/Supervisors/Program Directors clearly aware, allowing and giving orders for staff to transport like that all the time, that is not acceptable! Buy a new Van with proper seating in order to transport individuals safely.
Hi I need emergency help with first month rent and deposit pleez
If anyone knows this mans whereabouts please contact me. Some people had my dads phone tonight and I haven't heard from him since January.
We at the WESTSIDE SHELTER would like to thank Charmaine and her group at CHURCH OF JESUS CHRIST on Churchill for the donations. We greatly appreciate the generosity!!! I am especially grateful for the moment with the group in uplifting prayer. THANK YOU!!!
Happy birthday and special thank you to heading home with out I wonderful staff for your help and support merry Christmas
Today I was driving my car on the freeway and my serpentine belt went out and my car died I know absolutely nothing about vehicles... when .. I was coming off the San Mateo exit, stuck in the middle of the intersection! I had cars honking guys driving by whistling.. in trucks.... but yet none of them could stop and help me push my car out of the intersection! And out of nowhere these two homeless men showed up and pushed me out of the way! And all I have to say is thank God for these two gentlemen and I think it's time... the rest of the world driving around in vehicles air conditioning..etc., it's time we all pull together and help each other whether we're homeless or not we are all individuals/people! I hope to see them again, to do whatever I can to help them whether it be food blankets money anyting! if it wasn't for them who knows how long I would have been in that intersection. I worked for heading home winter shelter and I've met a lot of very nice people and we are all human! I can't wait for the shelter to open up again! I will keep these two men in my prayers and I hope to see them again so I can properly thank them. so here's a shout out to those two men that helped me! thank you!
