Mayor Tim Keller said in a statement Wednesday that the council members will be tasked with boosting coordination among nonprofits, city agencies, businesses and Native American groups as the city carries out key initiatives.

Those initiatives include opening a year-round shelter and providing more housing vouchers to people seeking to move from emergency shelters to more permanent housing.

He says Albuquerque is facing a crisis with homelessness in the city. As many as 40 people will serve on the advisory council.
