A NEW PARADIGM ~ Serving Homeless Women, their children and their pets

HEART of Taos is a nonprofit organization whose mission is to empower women experiencing (or at imminent risk of experiencing) homelessness. HEART stands for Hope, Empowerment, Advocacy, Respect and Transitional housing.

We use a one-on-one approach to provide pet-friendly emergency and transitional housing, to ensure each woman’s basic needs are being met, and to provide support services including individual and group counseling, peer and program advocates, and a step-by-step action plan that assists women to secure eligible government benefits, community services, employment, and a permanent affordable place to live.

Our goal is to provide an array of supports that assist women (and their children and pets) to rebound and achieve comprehensive stability so they may move forward with their lives.​


JOIN TEAMH.E.A.R.T., our AMAZING group of monthly donors who help us make a sustainable difference in the lives of the homeless women of Taos, their families, and their pets.

Former girls home gets new life for homeless women

By Cody Hooks
Sometimes, during the winter months, the “haves” forget how lucky they are. The cold bites at them as they make their way to their cars after work, which quickly heat up. A house full of warmth, light, a good meal on the stove and cozy pajamas then await them at the end of their day. The forgetfulness is not intentional. It’s human nature to be complacent.
