Pennies for the Homeless Foundation is working collaboratively with Bernalillo County to continue its mission to end homelessness. The Foundation is pleased to announce in 2020, the sponsorship of a permanent shade structure for the Bernalillo County Tiny Home Village.

The Foundation Board of Directors voted and approved funding the shading structure for the development. The steel base structure is 16’ x 16’ x 10’ and will help provide a comfortable outdoor living experience for the residents.

“As the co-founder of Pennies for the Homeless, it is our ongoing mission to help end homelessness. Although our community is facing the effects of COVID-19, we are able to continue our mission of helping the community. We will continue to help the community and support the agencies that help this vulnerable population,” said Joseph Saavedra, President of the Board of Directors.

Pennies for The Homeless continues its mission to fight homelessness. The never-ending commitment and tenacity for raising money for homeless programs in Albuquerque and in other New Mexico communities offer hope for a better future for New Mexicans.
