Carol Pierce is the Director of One Albuquerque Family and Community Services. Dr. Elizabeth Holguin is Deputy Director of Homeless Solutions and Clinical Advisor for the City of Albuquerque’s Family and Community Services. Albuquerque’s approach to helping the “unhoused” is multifaceted. Carol said, “Everybody’s experience is different, and they have had trauma in their life. That is usually the common denominator. What we want to do is find what is best to meet people where they are at.”
The Gibson Health Hub, Gateway Center, Safe Outdoor Spaces, and city services to assist the “unhoused” are our discussion topics. Dr. Holguin also invites non-profits, businesses, and individuals to help come up with creative solutions.
