NewLife Homes Inc., founded in 1993, is one of Albuquerque’s premier award winning developers of supportive housing based on proven methods for creating sustainable and viable communities. We develop housing that reflects the wider community needs, and includes workforce housing (for example medical assistants, food industry employees, first responders), alongside working families, and vulnerable residents with disabilities. We provide a nurturing supportive community where residents look out for each other and are invested in the broader community. Our reach is statewide with our project support in Santa Fe and Farmington. Our projects reach the highest level of energy efficiency with all new projects being LEED Platinum certified.
Our expertise allows us to revitalize blighted, abandoned or distressed properties creating a foundation for ensuring community stability and catalyzing economic redevelopment.
The goal of NewLife Homes Inc. is to provide safe, affordable, quality housing with support services, through the creation of mixed income/mixed use communities that revitalize neighborhoods, reduce crime, and improve adjacent property values.

Awards and Recognition
Our Service Community
NewLife Homes Inc. serves Albuquerque’s diverse community including those challenged by disabilities, fixed income, and/or social issues like post military service integration, and those impacted by other social circumstances. NewLife Homes projects have community rooms, computers, onsite managers, community gardens, age related amenities, food provisions through partner organizations, and service coordination to ensure that residents receive any necessary support services. Community groups, organizations and businesses use our community spaces for events, celebrations, workshops, trainings and regular neighborhood meetings. Collaboration with public/private/nonprofit groups are critical to our approach so that scarce resources are effectively deployed to address community needs, avoid duplication, and ensure that we remain effective stewards of public/private funds. Our staff are invested and engaged with over 500 residents we currently serve.
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.
