City of Albuquerque: Social Services and Behavioral Health Services – Youth Engagement, Behavioral Health, and Domestic Violence
The City of Albuquerque has established priorities for funding and they include the following goals:
Goal 1: Human and Family Development: People of all ages have the opportunity to participate in the community and economy and are well sheltered, safe, healthy, and educated.
Goal 2: Public Safety: The public is safe and secure, and shares responsibility for maintaining a safe environment.
The City of Albuquerque will support innovative and effective proposals from qualified non-profit organizations interested in providing services for populations in need of specific social services including positive youth engagement programs as well as services for people experiencing behavioral health challenges or domestic violence.
The City of Albuquerque has established a priority to fund projects that lead to improved outcomes to 1) Increase Behavioral Health Stability, 2) Increase Housing Stability, 3) Increase Public Safety, and 4) Increase Family Resilience. This involves a focus on addressing the Social Determinants of Health to achieve greater well-being and equity for all. Substantial evidence confirms the link between social, economic, and physical conditions and health outcome disparities. Social Determinants of Health include access to healthcare services, availability of services to support housing and behavioral health stability, lifelong education options, public safety and social services.
