According to God: Kevin's Story

Kevin's smile charms everyone he meets. When you spend any time with him, you realize quickly how talented and intelligent he is. He eyes are kind. 

Kevin grew up in the church, yet after all the sermons and church services, the message of Christ never penetrated his heart. He pursued pleasure and spent his money partying and doing drugs. He lived without purpose. "I could act as crazy as I wanted to. If something happened to me, nobody was there who would know" Kevin says. 

"I was killing myself," Kevin says now. He had tried several rehab programs but they didn't work. He had come to Albuquerque to visit his daughter and heard about Steelbridge. He came to check things out and the staff invited him to enjoy the lunch being served. 

That meal was the beginning of a new life for Kevin. 

He joined our men's New Life Program. The Bible-based structure and Christ-centered approach to recovery opened his eyes to a new way of living. "I knew needed to be here," he says. 

Years of defeat and abuse had shattered his own image of who he was and what it means to be a man. In Jesus, he's found what a real man is like. 

Now, Kevin wants to preach God's Word. He has been called to the ministry. He wants to use his testimony to see the lives of other people changed and transformed.

Every one of you who gives and invests in the ministry of Steelbridge has a part in the celebration in heaven that goes on because of Kevin. Eternal rewards. Lives changed. This is what happens when you give.

Drop off new shoes and socks at any Chick Fil A location beginning March 5th.


On March 31st, we'll be washing the feet of hundreds of homeless guests. A feast will be prepared. New shoes and socks will be given out. As will haircuts and hygiene bags. 

All of this serve as the backdrop as we present the good news of Christ and what Easter is all about with powerful music and ministry.

The Holidays Are Over. The Need Remains. But So Does Love. So Does Love.

The Christmas decorations have been neatly put away. Almost all the cookies have been eaten. Just the sweet memories of the holidays remain. Toys unwrapped. Family memories made. 

But today on the streets of Albuquerque, a man is sleeping on the streets in the same clothes he's had on for so long he doesn't remember. The sidewalk cold in ways that seep into his bones. Hunger gnaws at him. He is lost. He doesn't remember where he is, the day, or the date. His body is aching for another drink. 

A woman is walking near downtown. Her feet hurt so bad. Beyond numb. Beyond ache. Pavement pounding on shoes with holes. And the same socks she's worn every day for weeks. She's cold and so hungry. She wants to just stop somewhere and cry. But she can't. She's a woman, alone on the streets. She can't afford to stop. Danger is everywhere. Grabbing. Lurching. Wanting her coat. Her blanket. And more. 

The holidays are over. But need never takes a day off. Love doesn't either. 

Your gift today is proof of that. 

Steelbridge is a safe refuge from the storm. Nourishing food. Safe long-term housing. Life-changing programs. Warm clothing. A nurturing place for women and children. Compassionate care for anyone in crisis. 

For only $25/month you can join the fight against homelessness and addiction. Help someone get off the streets and into a new life. If you can't do that, a gift of any size makes a huge difference. 


Why did we change our name?

Why did we change our name?

In January of 2017, the Albuquerque Rescue Mission became Steelbridge Ministries. This decision was made intentionally, strategically, and prayerfully. I want to take a moment to remind you of WHY we made this important decision and how it symbolizes our renewed focus on transforming lives through the power of God’s love.

We changed our name because we were perceived as a “soup kitchen!” We are not a “soup kitchen” and haven’t been for several years.
