We are open for business and will remain open. We are beginning to provide services via telephone and telehealth options in order to minimize potential exposure or transmissions between clients and staff. We are a safety net for those in the most need of services during these challenging times and we are committed to maintaining options of support in all ways that we can.
If you are a NEW to The Life Link services:
For rental and utilities assistance - The Life Link Housing Department will still be screening people who need assistance BY PHONE. We are not taking walk-ins at this time. People who are in need of assistance can call between 10:00am-11:30am Monday through Friday. Direct lines: (505) 395-2531 or (505) 819-9901
For mental health services or help with substance abuse issues: Walk-ins are still available. Please come in between 8:00am and 12:00pm at 2325 Cerrillos Rd. We continue to uphold a very strict and stringent cleaning policy and require all new clients to wash their hands before receiving services.
All CURRENT clients:
For those with scheduled appointments, we will continue to send reminder texts and calls 24 hrs in advance. If you do not get one, please call us and we can update your contact info so that we can keep in good communication these next few weeks.
If you are at any of The Life Link facilities and displaying symptoms of the virus, the staff will ask you to leave to minimize transmission. We will follow-up by phone to make sure you are getting what you need.
Things are changing daily and we will do our best to communicate and support our community through this all. Please reach out if you have any questions. (505) 438-0010.
Thank you for your support. We welcome and appreciate your donations at this time to help sustain our services while we mitigate the consequences of this crisis.
