Support HEART House

HEART House provides emergency housing for up to 15 women and children experiencing homelessness in Taos. HEART House is a beautiful adobe-style home designed as a shared residence to allow the women and children to be housed with dignity and respect.

To provide this critical need for the Taos community, we need your financial support! It costs $368,000 to operate HEART House full-time, year-round. This budget provides emergency and transitional housing at night and necessary case management services and referrals during the day.
