What is Saranam?

Photo

Saranam is a 2-year housing and education program for homeless families in Albuquerque, NM.  Saranam offers a comprehensive range of services to assist families in transitioning beyond homelessness.

We work with homeless families (a family, for Sananam's purposes, includes at least one adult and one child with a legal connection) who have a desire and the motivation to change their lives to end their homelessness.  

Saranam provides:

  • Long-term housing
  • Intensive case management
  • Increasing levels of education
  • Focus on addressing individual issues
  • Supportive community

Saranam is unique:

  • Saranam Values Housing: the foundation for a family's stability 
  • Saranam Values Education: increased earning potential
  • Saranam Values Community: The lack of and loss of community and support systems is an underlying cause of homelessness, and thus relationship-building is crucial to and incorporated into every aspect of this program!

Because building community and building a network for support is so important to the program of Saranam, families are accepted into the program in “classes.” This allows for an immediate peer group and community to form.

Saranam is not a drug/alcohol treatment facility, a domestic abuse shelter, a mental health treatment facility nor do we provide any emergency services/shelter.

The Name

The word "saranam" means “refuge” and comes from a song in the United Methodist Hymnal, #523.
