The Barrett Foundation was founded in 1985 by Brother Mathias Barrett who was known as the friend of the homeless.
Having seen an increase in women and families in his soup kitchen, he founded an emergency shelter that would serve the needs of these women and their children on a short-term basis.
Barrett House was the first program of the Barrett Foundation and continues to serve women and their children by providing the basic necessities of life.
“Since our beginning in 1985, we’ve been committed to meeting needs of the most vulnerable members of our community, women and children experiencing homelessness. The issue of homelessness in Albuquerque has remained stubbornly persistent. For more than three decades, Barrett House has been a shelter and a life support for these women and children. Our mission is to end the experience of homelessness for women and children in our community by providing shelter, housing and supportive services. The women and children who seek shelter with us come from many different backgrounds with varying issues and challenges. We understand these challenges won’t be resolved quickly or easily. This is why we have a team and the facilities dedicated to meeting the women where they and assisting them on their journey out of homelessness and into stable housing.”
