CLNkids is a 501(c)(3) committed to ending child homelessness in our local community. CLNkids is a public/private partnership created out of a grass-roots volunteer effort to address the needs of homeless families in Albuquerque, New Mexico in 1988. More than twenty years later, CLNkids is proving that we can help families end homelessness through education. Our model, which focuses on providing homeless children with critical early childhood development and providing their parents with educational resources to put them on the path to self- sufficiency, has an 82% success rate.
Located in southeast Albuquerque, our facilities are on par with some of the best pre-schools and daycares in the city. Our early childhood development programs are not only nationally accredited by the National Association for the Education of Young Children, but are state licensed and have received a 5-star rating (the highest rating possible) from the Children, Youth and Families Department.
To continue our mission, we rely on both public and private support through donations, advocacy and volunteerism. We can't do what we do without the support of generous people like you.
