Las Cruces, NM - On this edition of PUENTES, bridges to the community, host Emily Guerra meets with Las Cruces Gospel Rescue Mission Shelter Director, Randy Smith, and Public Affairs Director, Alycia Carrillo. Founded in 1972, it is the only shelter in the area that offers Christian guidance, food, clothing and lodging 24 hours every day to homeless men, women and children.

Smith says they are only funded through local donors. So, how can you help? Carrillo says they have a new fundraiser called “The $20 Challenge,” with a goal of reaching $200,000 by the end of this year.
