GIVE PRAY LOVE Tis the season...

Last week’s blog post was all about Hanukkah ( EIGHT DAYS IN DECEMBER ), so this week we are celebrating Christmas and hoping you will join us in recognizing the organizations below and perhaps help them in carrying out their important missions.

December 25th is Christmas for so many in our community who won’t be joining family members at their homes, but we can all make their holidays a little brighter by providing the means to assure a meal is available to them.

Joy Junction is a 501(c)3 faith-based church ministry founded in 1986 that provides both emergency and short-term food, housing, and counseling for homeless women and families. We are the largest shelter for families in the state, with the capacity to serve over 200,000 meals each year to men, women, and children.

It’s cold out there and warm in here – let’s find these critters good homes. If you can’t adopt, maybe you can support the staff who do the heavy lifting, or feed our furry friends.

Bring us your poor, your sick, your hungry, those in need....

The Albuquerque Center for Peace and Justice provides resources and space for organizations and individuals working on peace and justice issues to network with one another and share information. Through our programs and collaborations, we work locally to support regional and global justice.

How about one of those turquoise signs you’ve seen all over town? A great Chanukah or Christmas gift!

Proceeds benefit this amazing organization:

In response to local interest from communities and the state, Lutheran Family Services' Albuquerque office was opened in 2012. Since that time, LFS has served over 600 refugees in New Mexico.

Breaking Cycles. Building Lives. Crossroads for Women provides trauma-informed therapeutic services with a gender-specific approach for women across seven domains: housing, mental health, recovery, physical health/dental, independent living, vocational, and family/parenting. Services are provided in collaboration with community partners. Liz McGrath and Deanna Archuleta chair and vice-chair the Crossroads Board - it is in terrific hands!

The New Mexico Center on Law and Poverty’s mission is to advance economic and social justice through education, advocacy, and litigation. We work with low-income New Mexicans to improve living conditions, increase opportunities, and protect the rights of people living in poverty.

Pegasus was founded in 2002 by two Albuquerque lawyers, Tara Ford and Liz McGrath. Both attorneys had worked as lawyers for children and youth in foster care and had seen the benefits of having a skilled lawyer to advocate for these vulnerable children. Their experience led them to believe that children and youth outside of the foster care system would also benefit from access to legal services. Pegasus was incorporated under New Mexico state law in April of 2002, and received its initial 501(c)(3) determination letter in February of 2003.

“Am I My Brother’s Keeper?” - You bet we are! 60% of these US Citizens are still without electricity….

Wishing all of you Peace, Love, Good Health and Prosperity in 2018.
