Offering services for mental health, substances, and co-occuring disorders.
Helping individuals and families who are homeless and displaced achieve self-sufficiency through emergency assistance, housing and other supportive programs, including advanced addiction and behavioral health treatment services.
Since its beginning, The Life Link’s central focus has been to help individuals and families who are homeless improve their quality of life. In 1987, responding to an urgent need for a place in which homeless families could stay together, Carol Luna and two other women volunteers opened the first Life Link family shelter, La Luz de Santa Fe, in an eleven-unit former motel. The following year, the organization received 501(c)(3) status and 21 years later is now a licensed Community Mental Health Center with more than 60 employees.
From its humble start in the motel, The Life Link has expanded its services to include mentally ill homeless services, case management, co-occurring disorders (psychiatric and substance abuse) treatment, multiple-DWI offender treatment, intensive outpatient treatment, supportive employment, psycho-social rehabilitation in our Clubhouse building, homeless prevention and rental assistance, peer-support services, onsite healthcare screening, We accept medicaid and other forms of insurance.
