Who Are We?
St. Martin’s Hospitality Center provides critical services for people experiencing homelessness and near homelessness. We provide:
St. Martin’s has been at the forefront of working to end homelessness for over 27 years and has recently started a new approach of attempting to end homelessness as we know it in the next five years. St. Martin’s was founded in 1985, and is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization with a passion and mission to end homelessness one person at a time. St. Martin’s has been recognized for excellence in program delivery and outcome and is proud to report only a 9% admin cost compared with an industry standard that should not exceed 20%. Efficiency and efficacy are central to the mission of St. Martin’s, “To assist homeless and near homeless people by providing resources, opportunity and Hope.”
Our goal is to create self-sufficiency and break the cycle of homelessness. We have discovered that an individual’s greatest resources are their own skills and strengths; their greatest opportunity, that of integration in the community; and their greatest hope, the freedom to choose their own path.
The St. Martin’s Coffee Shop was awarded the New Mexico Coalition to End Homelessness’ Non-profit Innovation Award for 2013. The Coffee Shop serves as an employment training site for individuals attempting to leave the streets and escape poverty. Let’s celebrate the hard work and imagination we use to help our clients leave homelessness! Come try our amazing gourmet coffee and support St. Martin’s programs!
