NMSU Social Services
NMSU Social Services connects students to resources on campus, in the greater Las Cruces community, and federally funded programs. Those resources could be anything from basic needs, such as food, shelter, or health care, to issues such as finding childcare, financial assistance, counseling, or legal aid.
Help our students experiencing housing insecurity by donating to the Emergency Housing Fund! Donations to the Emergency Housing Fund (EHF) are dispersed to NMSU and DACC students experiencing housing insecurity* or homelessness**.
Donate to our Emergency Housing Fund here: https://mas.nmsu.edu/housing/
Payroll deduction for NMSU staff is also available https://mypayrollgift.nmsu.edu/

*Housing insecurity includes a broad set of challenges such as the inability to pay rent or utilities, or the need to move frequently. All of these challenges affect students, and results suggest that they are more likely to suffer some form of housing insecurity than to have all their needs met during college. (1)
**Homelessness means that a person does not have a stable place to live. (1)
