NMSU?s Engineering Without Boundaries brings hope to homeless camp


On a chilly and windy Saturday in late February, a group of 20 New Mexico State University students gathered to discuss the plan for the day. It was one of their last community service days at Camp Hope, a tent city sanctioned by the city for the homeless residents in Las Cruces, New Mexico.

Camp Hope was developed in 2011 as a temporary solution to the impending winter and stayed as a permanent shelter for homeless residents. Camp Hope is located within a short distance of a soup kitchen, social services, a medical clinic, restrooms and showers.

Engineering Without Boundaries, a student organization within NMSU?s College of Engineering, designed the layout of the camp into organized plots and has helped perform routine maintenance.
