St. Martin’s Hospitality Center was founded in 1985 by the Reverend Susan Sager (one of the nation’s first ordained female priests) and several of her Episcopalian peers. Since that time, St. Martin’s evolved into a non-sectarian 501c3 organization which has become Albuquerque’s premier day homeless shelter.
Rev. Sager passed away May 12, 2007, however the legacy she created continues. St. Martin’s provides many needed services for the homeless and near homeless, including hot meals, shower facilities, clothing exchange, mental and behavioral health case management, job placement, rural and community outreach, substance abuse treatment, program housing, self-sufficiency, storage of cherished belongings, and stranded homeless travelers’ aid, just to name a few.
