Saint Luke’s

Saint Luke’s mission includes the core values of Compassion, Accountability, Respect, Excellence, and Service.  The featured logo will soon be replaced by a newer, rebranded logo to introduce the grand opening of Amador Health Center.

Peer support specialist at Saint Luke’s Health Care Clinic, James Sassak comments on the dangers of trauma brought on by harmful psychological duress after emergency care and hospitalization, being ticketed and indebted with trespass charges which may result in failure to appear warrants, and the problem of being identified as homeless.

Later in the conversation, James offers the potential solution of Homeless Court Programs to help resolve these issues in Las Cruces.
