About NewLife Homes
Created in 1993, NewLife Homes develops, owns, and manages affordable housing with a focus on special needs. Our mission is to provide safe, affordable, quality housing with a focus on persons with mental illness, physical disabilities, the elderly, veterans, and persons who are homeless. With 9 properties in Albuquerque, NewLife Homes serves over 300 individuals and families. Outside of Albuquerque, we have partnered with Bethel Development Inc. on two projects, one in Santa Fe and one in Farmington. We are very excited to expand the amount of residents we are able to serve while supporting our city in neighborhood revitalization initiatives.
Awards and Recognition
Who do we serve?
We serve very low income persons, at or below 30%-50% of area median income. Prior to residing in NewLife Homes housing, the majority of our residents have been in crisis housing, emergency shelters, substance abuse treatment programs, or on the streets. All NewLife Homes projects have community rooms, computers and computer training, onsite managers, food provision through Roadrunner, and service coordination to ensure that residents receive the support services they need to avoid premature institutionalization. NewLife Homes staff are invested in the residents, have ongoing social activities, celebrate birthdays and public holidays, and provide onsite memorial services for residents we've lost. For many residents, NewLife Homes is the only home they've known. We have provided housing for over 300 people. We currently only serve Albuquerque but have received donated land in northern and southern New Mexico to replicate our successful Albuquerque projects.
How are we funded?
NewLife Homes receives funding from rental income and from competitive grants from HUD, the New Mexico Mortgage Finance Authority, the City of Albuquerque, and private foundations such as United Way, McCune, Frost. Our agency has received more HUD Section 811 grants (housing for persons with disabilities) than any other agency in NM. Donations from individual donors are also greatly appreciated. Please contact any of our staff listed below for more information about how to donate.
Our Unique Business Model
NewLife Homes staff structure is extremely LEAN AND GREEN, with an executive director, onsite managers, and service coordinators. Comparable agencies serving the same number of clients have 4 times the staff complement. We provide quality environmentally friendly housing at a cost per unit that is unsurpassed in the state because we have very limited office overhead expenses, receive substantial pro bono work from architects and other vendors, and have little or no resident/staff/board turnover. Our average unit rental including utilities and support services is $280 per month when an equivalent one bedroom market rental in Albuquerque is $682, and monthly SSDI (social security disability income) is $674. Without this supportive housing, most of our residents would be on the streets.
