New Las Cruces apartment complex provides housing for the homeless

LAS CRUCES, New Mexico --Desert Hope Apartments, a complex designed to house the homeless, is now open in in Las Cruces.

The tenants began moving into the apartment complex this week.

Desert Hope, operated by the Mesilla Valley Public Housing Authority, is part of a project that aims to help stop homelessness in the community. 

It is an affordable housing complex that contains 40 units. Tenants are charged rent based on their income, so the cost varies with each individual. 

The purpose of the apartments is to provide affordable housing for the low-income community. 

Applications are still being accepted and interested individuals must sign up on the waitlist. 

According to the Housing Authority’s website, applications are only open to the homeless. You can find out more information online at
