The mission of Barrett Foundation is to provide housing and supportive services to women and children who are striving to break the cycle of homelessness.
Who We Serve
Every day, homeless women and children turn to us for help. Most of them are here because of poverty and have sought temporary housing with family, in apartments, in motels, and in their cars. Other causes of homelessness include personal tragedy, trauma, mental illness, and substance abuse. Today’s economy, particularly housing foreclosures, has had large effect on women and their children.
The International Night of Passion
February 14, 2014
Come celebrate Valentine’s Day with an international flair! We will hold our First Annual International Night of Passion, presented by the Barrett Foundation on February 14, 2015 at the historic Hotel Albuquerque. This premiere Valentine’s Day event will include themed entertainment, as well as the chance to sample appetizers and drinks from three different countries- Japan, France and Spain. In addition to sampling the ambiance and tastes of these international destinations- a gourmet dinner, dance, live music and entertainment, raffle and a silent auction stocked with unique items from each of the countries will surely make for a Valentine’s night to remember!
The Barrett Foundation wishes to thank Bernalillo County for its support of our work with women and children experiencing homelessness. This is the first year of support from the county and we look forward to an ongoing relationship.
