Saranam LLC

Saranam LLC Our mission is to empower families to end their homelessness and poverty through housing, education and supportive communities. Saranam is an innovative, two-generational program that helps families in New Mexico who are experiencing homelessness to break cycles of poverty and achieve long-term self-sufficiency.
(6)

During our two-year program, families live in a safe, fully furnished transitional apartments with a community of their peers. This stable home provides a platform for the intensive education, life skills, and community building that families undertake during their time at Saranam. Through their studies, families gain skills that will enable them to sustain positive outcomes and increase their long-term earning potential. After 16 years, we have served 132 families, including 152 adults and 272 children. Most importantly, 80 percent of our families successfully exit our program into safe, stable living situations on their own income. Visit our website to learn more about how you can be a part of the work to end homelessness in our community and keep up to date on our program and families’ accomplishments on their journey home.

If ever there was a good allegory for 2020, this is it.

It would have been a really hard year if it weren't for all of you. Thank you for all you've given this year- for helping your neighbor and making sure everyone has a chance.

From all of us at Saranam, we wish you all a very happy New Year.

The MVP of 2020 is unequivocally- community. 🏆We have seen our community join together in more imaginative, creative and bigger ways than ever before to support the most vulnerable families among us.

Truly, thank you. 👏

Just like it takes a village to raise a child, it takes a community to transform a family. As you consider your end-of-year gifts, we hope that you know what an enormous difference your support makes for our families.

We say that we have a 77% success rate, but what does that mean?

Well a family exits successfully when they have met 3 or more of these measures and are able to support themselves self-sufficiently. And like our real lives, the measures reflect the complexity of things that contribute to who we are and how we thrive.

It's a big accomplishment to successfully exit, and we're so proud of the hard work families undertake to meet their goals.

Our Story

Saranam is an innovative, two-generational program that helps families in New Mexico who are experiencing homelessness to achieve long-term self-sufficiency and break cycles of poverty.

During our two-year program, families live in a safe, fully furnished transitional apartments with a community of their peers. This stable home provides a platform for the intensive education, life skills, and community building that families undertake during their time at Saranam. Through their studies, families gain skills that will enable them to sustain positive outcomes and increase their long-term earning potential.

“I have been extremely successful at Saranam. I’ve stayed sober. I graduated from CNM and PIMA. I am living with my son and rebuilt a relationship with my mom. I learned how to utilize resources and be responsible. I’ve become a leader and a mentor.”

After 16 years, we have served 132 families, including 152 adults and 272 children. Most importantly, 80 percent of our families successfully exit our program into safe, stable living situations on their own income.

I just talked to a friend on the phone who told me Saranam was her favorite charity because it makes such an incredible difference in a family's life not only while they are in the program but also for the rest of their lives.
What a fun evening, painting rocks ! So many different colors and designs.
I really enjoyed this last Newsletter - good to see new families moving in and about all the little ones joining the group. Godspeed in your new chapter!!
Is there any need for a night stand? Wood pretty solid. 3 drawers. Has a few dings and dents. Needs some barrel nuts to secure a couple drawers too........
