“Showing people the compassion of Christ to introduce them to the salvation of Christ.”
We see them on our street corners. Sometime we give, sometimes we avoid eye contact. For others in our community, they struggle to make ends meet and don’t know where their next meal will come from. Men, women, and children right here in our city. The neighbors we are called by Christ to love.
While the stories change, the need is the same. Whether it’s addiction, abuse, neglect, lean times, or bad choices, these homeless and destitute individuals need the gospel of Jesus Christ to transform their lives and renew their hearts. This is the message we exist to spread, and we do it through a meal. Consider what David says—a gentleman who came to us homeless and in need of clothing and spiritual guidance:
“The Rock at Noon Day has given me so much, I don’t know where to start. When I first came to Noon Day, I was homeless without much of anything. Since that time, I have food and clothing. . . The Rock is absolutely essential! The services, food, laundry, showers and everything else provided make a big difference. The homeless count on The Rock for everyday life.”
Last year we served more than 118,000 meals to the homeless and materially poor just like David, and this year the demand has only increased. Right now, we are serving more than 370 meals every day, and we need your help. $25 a month provides 20 meals for Albuquerque’s homeless. Please consider partnering with us by providing a monthly gift today.
Your generosity enables us to provide tangible, life-affirming service to the homeless, hungry, and hurting in our city and provide them with the message of real hope in Jesus Christ. Please consider what you can give today, and thank you for partnering with us to make a difference in Albuquerque!

FOOD AND CLOTHING
Got soup and a warm sweater? Imagine living on the street.
It’s getting cold out there. You know how you bundle up to get from the house to the car?
Imagine not having a house or a car or anything to bundle in.
We need your gently used coats, sweaters, long-johns, all those warm things you aren’t using.
Speaking of warm, how about going to the grocery store and picking up soup or other pantry items to help your brothers and sisters?
GOODS AND SERVICES
Toothbrushes & haircuts. The things we take for granted.
When was the last time you had a haircut? Last week? Last month? Do you remember?
Here’s an equation: Haircut = Confidence.
Another one: Personal Hygiene = Job, maybe.
Here are a few necessities you may want to include :
Personal hygiene items are a must at The Rock. Our guests need them to shower and care for themselves. Consider donating travel size toiletries and other items such as toothpaste and combs.
Bring’em to The Rock!

You know all those little bottles of shampoo and lotion that you throw in your suitcase after a business trip? We need them now. Also the jeans that fit you 2 years ago. Someone else can wear them now. These are just some of the things that we need for our guests to feel human again.
