Thank you Albuquerque Police Department for everything you do! Cops for Kids was amazing this year - our families needed this ~ it’s wonderful what we can all do when we support our community, our city. Thank you!

The Albuquerque Police Department and Albuquerque Metro Crime Stoppers held its 26th annual Cops for Kids event this weekend. 100 families and 157 kids were assisted this holiday season.

Due to Covid, this year’s Cops for Kids event was held in a different way. Usually, officers would pick up the children and take them to stores like Walmart to pick out gifts. However, this year to keep everyone safe, volunteers from Crime Stoppers and APD Chaplains gathered gifts and had them wrapped and ready to go for the officers to pick up.

On Sunday, officers with APD, Corrales Police, BCSO, State Police and APS Police arrived in a drive through type setting and the gifts and meals were placed in their units. The officers then personally drove to the children’s homes to hand deliver the gifts.

This year, Cottonwood Mall provided 20 gifts and Golden Pride made 150 burritos for the children.

APD’s Chaplain Unit donated stuffed animals and Walmart provided turkeys, food baskets and blankets for the families.

Cops for Kids is a philanthropic event held every year to help underprivileged children in our community. Anywhere from 110 to 125 children are selected and paired with an officer. The gifts provided to them are often the only Christmas gifts they’ll receive.

Lost in the Masked Shuffle & Virtual Void: Children and Youth Experiencing Homelessness Amidst the Pandemic | SchoolHouse Connection

We are busier than ever this year - and yes, it is harder to identify and find our families that are experiencing homeless but when we do connect, needs are far greater than ever.

Schools provide safety, stability, and services for children and youth experiencing homelessness. However, children and youth must first be identified as experiencing homelessness. New survey data suggests that an estimated 420,000 fewer children and youth experiencing homelessness have been identified and enrolled by schools so far this school year – despite evidence of increasing homelessness, and despite proactive identification efforts.

1.5 million kids right now. #wecandobetter

"Tens of millions of kids are taking classes online at home right now because of the coronavirus pandemic. That's hard enough for most families. But if you're homeless and have no computer, sketchy Wi-Fi and no quiet place to study, it's even more difficult. That's the case for the 1.5 million schoolchildren currently experiencing homelessness across the United States." - NPR

Many of our students and families are in the midst of a hurricane right now. Our high school kiddos that have been couch surfing know that their welcome is running out and they have no where else to go. For families that are doubled up - they may be asked to leave any day. Tensions are high everywhere. When you do not have your own home - just imagine what they are experiencing. Please, please think of them. ❤️

We just dropped off a mom and her two toddlers at the Westside shelter, where they are doing an amazing job screening for the virus. They take the temperature and check the symptoms of every person who comes in, then put wristbands on everyone who has been checked. They are so practiced and professional it seems like they have been doing this for years, instead of mere days.

It’s tragic that in the world’s wealthiest country, 4.2 million teenagers are homeless. To make change, the public needs to know not just numbers, but faces and stories behind those numbers. ‘Lost In America’ is doing just that.

Reaching ‘Our Most Invisible Population’ During a Pandemic: How Schools Are Scrambling to Protect Homeless Students as Coronavirus Disrupts Lives

As schools across the U.S. shutter due to the coronavirus outbreak, school officials have found themselves on the front lines of helping America’s ever-growing population of homeless students, scrambling to provide food, shelter and a sense of safety.

Just weeks ago, a 17-year-old student from rural Michigan was living at home with a father and stepmother struggling with addiction. But when staying with family became untenable, she moved in with a friend — an arrangement that fizzled out just as the coronavirus pandemic began to sweep across th...

This incredible event has been helping and supporting the students and families experiencing homelessness in ABQ for 7 years! I am so lucky to be a part of it. These outfits are seriously some of the cutest things I have ever seen. #sewinggoals Thank you to Hip Stitch and the Albuquerque Chapter of the American Sewing Guild for making this possible.
