It provides resources in emergency shelters and urban spa hotels to help homeless people find stable shelter. According to the city administration, around 144 people in 36 households have already signed a rental agreement for an apartment.

According to a press release from the City of Albuquerque, the program was also created to provide training in preparation for the Gateway Centers. The program offers on-site services at one of the spa hotels, and temporary accommodation set up during the COVID pandemic provides non-communal accommodation for people affected by homelessness.

The city states that due to an unprecedented housing demand for families with children, the wellness hotel and housing program will be extended for another year. In collaboration with several partners in the program, on-site support is provided, including the management of residential vouchers and case navigators to help put together documents to connect people to services.

According to the city, three spa hotels have been built to keep people homeless during the pandemic, and vaccination clinics have been set up at all locations. In addition to the Fast Track Housing program, an estimated 47 other households have switched from the wellness hotels to living or have been reunited with their families.
