H.E.A.R.T. of Taos

is a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization that is funded by generous private and community support.

Born out of the question, “What about the Women?” and co-founded by Maia’ma (Ama) Khan and Kathy Herman, H.E.A.R.T. of Taos – run by women, for women –  empowers amazing transformations in the lives of courageous and beautiful women overcoming homelessness and raises the bar on how Taos cares for its most vulnerable members.

Our mission? To assist Taos County women and children to transition out of homelessness.

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.​

Former girls home gets new life for homeless women

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.

The “have-nots” can’t escape how unlucky they are. They face desperation every day. The homeless – women, children, families and pets – look into the windows of the “haves” and silently, sadly retreat to cars without heat or food …

In the competitive world of art galleries that need patrons to keep the lights on and nonprofits that need community support for their altruistic goals, there is a breath of fresh air and a long-standing tradition in Taos of women helping each other.

On Saturday (Oct. 7), from 3-6 p.m. in the John Dunn Shops, 120-G Bent St., Las Comadres Gallery, a cooperative for women artists, and HEART, a nonprofit offering transition assistance for women, continue this tradition and join forces to raise money and community consciousness about homelessness …
