Homeless Court is a collaborative effort between the City of Santa Fe Municipal Court and St. Elizabeth Shelter, as well as various other service providers, to assist homeless people with outstanding non-DUI criminal, misdemeanor and traffic cases. Individuals with outstanding warrants can be barred from employment, public housing or entitled benefits and risk fines and/or jail time if caught. As a provider, St. Elizabeth Shelter makes referrals and cooperates with the court in working with the defendants. The court may dismiss the case, keep the warrant in effect or sentence the defendant to continued attendance at various programs. Homeless Court meets monthly at the Santa Fe Resource & Opportunity Center, and outside of Albuquerque, is the only such court in New Mexico.
