Heading Home operates the Respite Care Program at the Albuquerque Opportunity Center Campus. The Respite Care Program has 30 beds available for men 18 years and older who are experiencing homelessness, have an acute injury or illness, and are ambulatory.We accept referrals from all local area hospitals that contract our beds.
This program is for homeless men and women who have no where to recover from medical issues. Many are released from the hospital or have a doctor refer them to the program. They can stay as long as the doctor thinks they need respite.
