Making A Difference

 The work we do is more than providing a place to stay.  Together we are agents of Hope that breath life into forgotten dreams. Through partnership with local churches and community agencies we are providing resources to empower individuals and families to reach their full potential in our community.


With this initiative, our goal is to partner with local health agencies to promote health and wellness to those in need. With access to the right resources, people can become empowered by their own abilities and gain the confidence to fulfill their potential. Learn more about our work by getting in touch with our team today.

Nurse Talking to Patient


As a 501c3 The Roswell Homeless Coalition operates two Homeless Shelters in Roswell, NM that provide temporary housing to Men, Women, and Children in need.  Our goal is simple. Connect individuals to local partners and agencies to help equip them for life off of the streets.  This is something that we take very seriously, and our team is working each and every day to make a positive impact in our community.  


Are you a local agency that is interested in partnering with the RHC? Contact us to let us know how you can help! 

Our Operations

Each month it Cost roughly $10,000 to keep the shelter doors open.  Our Cost is comprised of Staff, Utilities, Insurance, and Shelter Projects.  We are funded primarily through generous local partners and friends.  


In fall of 2019 we received our First Partnership Funding of $40,000  for Men's Shelter Renovations from the United Way of Chaves County!  


We have also developed strategic Partnerships with Roadrunner Food Bank and Harvest Ministries to meet the basic needs of nutrition so that individuals can move beyond the stress of finding their next meal.


Would you consider Donating to help us keep the only Homeless Shelters in Chaves County Open in 2020?
