Taos CARES / HEART Hotel Program

Due to COVID-19, HEART House transitioned to HEART’s Hotel Program in October 2020 for the safety and health of the guests and staff.  To avoid any outbreak, HEART of Taos believes this is the safest way to continue to support women and families facing homelessness during a worldwide pandemic.

The Taos CARES Crisis Housing Program began in December 2020, with DreamTree Project as the fiscal agent and employer of the program staff, and HEART as the manager of day-to-day operations. The CARES Program is a collaborative effort, operated by DreamTree Project in partnership with HEART of Taos. In fall 2021, management transitioned to DreamTree with HEART serving in an advisory capacity.

In 2021, Taos CARES provided 154 individuals with shelter and services in 16 hotel rooms using federal CARES Act funding and funding from HEART for 4 rooms.

Anyone who is looking for a safe place to stay should call Taos CARES at 575-425-1738. For employment opportunities and further information about DreamTree Project, please go to https://www.dreamtreeproject.org/

 

All services and support – including free case management – will be administered to all guests through the hotel Program. If guest(s) exhibits COVID-19 symptoms, then they can safely isolate in their individual rooms while staff continues to safely provide “no-contact” delivery of supplies and food during their isolation period. Since each household will have their own hotel room with bathroom and amenities, this will allow guests and staff to safely interact.

Please help support HEART so that we can continue to support the community in a safe and effective way.

Hope | Empowerment | Advocacy | Respect | Trust
