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.

March is #nationalnutritionmonth! 🍇🥦🍅🍊

We thought we would celebrate by talking to our Family Stability Advocate, who happens to also be a licensed nutritionist, about how having access to healthy food impacts a family's stability. Spoiler alert- A LOT!

We are thrilled to receive a grant from Blue Cross and Blue Shield of New Mexico through its Healthy Kids, Healthy Families initiative! This grant will support our After Exit program, which provides alumni of our program with a host of opportunities to help them reach their highest goals.

With BCBSNM's assistance, our alumni families can build assets and participate in credit recovery, maintain a supportive community, and even take classes in homebuying (pictured here)! Thank you for supporting thriving families!

It's hard to believe that housing is THIS FAR out of reach for families in Albuquerque, AND rent spiked over 8% in 2020, moving it even further out of reach.

It's clear we need more affordable housing, but we also need to increase the potential earnings of families, and that's why education is so important. Education= ↗️💲

Have you met Ian, our Director of Education? Well you SHOULD!

Not only is Ian a phenomenal instructor (that's how he joined us 7 years ago), he is a pillar for our families- always available for a tutoring session or to help design an educational pathway that will help them succeed.

An advocate of perpetual learning himself, he consistently pushes our education program forward, adjusting topics to help families respond to new challenges they face and ensuring they are prepared for whatever comes their way.

On top of all of that, he is one of the most interesting people you'll ever have the pleasure of talking to. A true teacher, it's not uncommon for him to weave a science lesson into a discussion of community, or drop snippets of gardening knowledge to those he's speaking to.

It's a true privilege to have Ian on board!

Help us celebrate!

One of our parents is taking four (4!!!) classes at CNM. Distance learning is already tough, but she took on the extra brave task of an asynchronous calculus class. That means no live interaction (teaching or tutoring) for this notoriously difficult class. Talk about a high hurdle to jump. Well...she just took her first big test of the semester and did GREAT!!! 🥳

Will you help us send a little joy her way and leave a cheer in comments below?! 👇

What a heartwarming day we had last week with Longer Table Woodcrafters LLC. Not only did we get to meet a WONDERFUL new community partner- we got to be the recipients of 11 super neat entryway stations and a coffee table.

Their mission is pretty special- for every piece YOU buy, THEY donate one to a community organization in need. Thank you for sharing the love!

This is astounding. Among the many factors that contribute to poverty in our state- the cost of childcare is astronomical. Child care for two children would be over 38% more than the average rent in New Mexico.

And YET, early childhood education is crucial and childcare workers are woefully underpaid. Creative solutions are certainly needed for this growing problem.

Info drop! The 2020 Kids Count data just came out.

The good news (we could all use a little of that)?

We are getting better. It's slow progress, yes, but progress is progress. NM is still at the bottom of these stats nationally, but our work is well...working.

We CAN make a better future for the children of our state!

FYI- another great resource coming down the line.

"Residents who meet certain income and other criteria can qualify for up to 15 months of assistance with rent and utilities, including back payments and future costs. Mayor Tim Keller in a statement called it “a lifeline” for struggling families “to avoid the cliff and make it through this.”

Residents can receive up to 15 months of assistance

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.

“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........
Hi. This is my niece. We have reason to believe that she is with her mom, Dawn Bailey-Curley, there in Albuquerque. Can you please post and/or share? Thank you.
