There are hundreds of homeless men women and children sleeping outdoors every night in New Mexico...
Homeless Shelters will only allow people to stay about 90 days each year and then they must move on or sleep outdoors...
The crazy thing is that sleeping outdoors or in a vehicle is illegal!
Can we just agree that homelessness hasn't gotten any better through the conventional shelter method?
In fact it has gotten worse...
The Studio of Hope has the 12 step solution to
1. 5 acre campgrounds in all major cities.
2. Meal site at the campground.
3. Temp. Job service at the campground, all jobs are paid in cash.
4. all that stay MUST have a good reason not to except work.
5. Invite and give space to any and all NPO's that provide help to the homeless.
6. Provide work clothes that are required for the jobs we provide.
7. Require all that stay to do some sort of chores (pick up trash, clean outhouses & showers, etc.)
8. Allow people to sleep in vehicles, tiny homes or tents as long as they follow the rules, for as long as they like.
9. Sobriety is not a requirement to stay or sleep
10. AA and NA meetings will be held every day at the campground.
11.Anyone that follows the rules and holds a job for 30 days is eligible for our transitional housing.
12.Our affordable Transitional housing is the end of homelessness!
The Studio of Hope has some amazing things planned for 2019!
it's going to be a great year!

Our programs are all designed to fulfill the needs of the communities they serve.
Albuquerque is in need of a "Free" campground for stranded and homeless motorists, we see them everyday at Wal-mart parking lots and at the truck stops, Albuquerque truck stops and Wal-marts do not allow overnite parking, these people will be ran off after a night or two, some of these people are without resources to move on or just don't know what to do next, we just don't have a place where these people can sleep, in fact it is illegal to sleep in ABQ without any money..
Emergency Overnight Camping
Our Emergency Overnight Campground (EOC) will provide a place for anyone in need, to park and sleep in a car/truck/camper/RV as long as needed, we want to provide a shower facility and flush toilets along with a meal site for those who may need it, but until that happens our phase 1 program includes blue port-a-pots, potable water access, a roll off dumpster and a secure safe place to park and sleep without being in violation of law or ordinance. Jesus taught us:
"The poor you will always have with you."
don't you want to obey GOD?
The Old Testament of the Bible (Holy Torah)
“If among you, one of your brothers should become poor, in any of your towns within your land that the Lord your God is giving you, you shall not harden your heart or shut your hand against your poor brother, but you shall open your hand to him and lend him sufficient for his need, whatever it may be...For the poor you will always have with you in the land. Therefore I command you, ‘You shall open wide your hand to your brother, to the needy and to the poor, in your land.’" (Deut 15:7-11)
