Steelbridge

Steelbridge 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.

#Didyouknow that according to the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development, people living in shelters are more than twice as likely to have a disability compared to the general population. On a given night in 2017, 20 percent of the homeless population reported having a serious mental illness, 16 percent conditions related to chronic substance abuse, and more than 10,000 people had HIV/AIDS.

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.

General information

The purpose of all the programs at Steelbridge is to permanently end homelessness in the lives of the men, women and children who come into the Mission each day. Whether it is an open door to the life of a homeless person through one of our ministries of compassion such as food, clothing or shelter leading to life solutions or through the more comprehensive help offered through the New Life Program or Women's Center of Hope, the desired outcome is the same...lives transformed through the power of God's love.

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 provide long-term housing, residential programs, food, clothing, emergency shelter, counseling 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.

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

Steel Bridge gave me a place of safe refuge, growth in myself, and finding a place. Dispite any circumstances faced head on...... Steel Bridge was there for me even in the event of losing my little girl Laiyesha and my little sister Cindy both 2 weeks from each other. Y'all came to my rescue and gave me tremendous help, courage, and supportive care. I want to share a testimony of my faith.....I became homeless with no where to go or plan my next move. Steel Bridge gave me HOPE, LOVE AND CARE through my stay. God placed Steel Bridge in my path for a good reason and I'm grateful to God's provision that He placed me at Steel Bridge not only for shelter.....he brought me back To Jesus!! There's so much God plays a role in your life. He wants all of us to know He Truly Loves Us All as he is providing shelter, help that is greatly needed and shed His Love upon you all!! He did me and still providing for me. What he can do for me..... God will surely do for you. Believe in Him and he will direct your path!! Trust in his words in the Bible and he will guide your life. Allow God to Heal, Love and Care for you so that you will know his evident unconditional love for you!! I'm a witness of his love, provision and healing not only that..... Jesus is my Best Friend who never lets me down always ready to pick me up when I'm down and loves where I am..... Give Jesus a try....... I'm very thankful I did!!
Steelbridge at one time had honorable intentions..then the shysters of Legacy took it over..they have successfully forced out anyone who cared, all counselors, most pastors, most "paid" employees..then they make the point "cannot collect unemployment cuz we're 503c". Nice..observation..its all about the real estate.
Hi, I’m a volunteer with The Center for Search and Investigations of Missing Children (CFSI- http://cfsimissing.com/CFSI_Home.html) and we’re asking for your help in searching for a missing child believed to be in your area. Could you please share the following graphic/poster and information with others who may be able to help in locating this child? All contact information is included with the photo. Please contact the appropriate law enforcement officer if seen. Thank you for your help and cooperation! Sincerely, Aletta Vickery https://www.facebook.com/NOMADnotfoundyet/photos/a.469032349876307/2603395899773264/?type=3&theater
