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.
