We have been ministering help and hope in the Sunnyslope community since 2013. Our organization focuses on Honoring, Empowering, and Loving People that are experiencing homelessness and poverty. We have evolved from a street feeding outreach to bringing them indoors for greater impact by the kindness of St. Vincent de Paul's Becker Hall dining room on 10th Ave south of Hatcher. We want these people and this community transformed as we bring the life transforming power of the Gospel of Jesus Christ and make God's Word relevant to them. We do this through Wednesday Bible Studies, participating with Hope City Church and Elevate Life Foundation who provide Saturday Outreaches with food, fellowship, and Church ministry. We are dedicated to relationship development and connecting people with community resources.
As part of the City of Phoenix's SOS (Success Off the Streets Collaborative), we've developed relationships with Phoenix Rescue Mission, and other agencies that are providing resources to end homelessness. We will change the "culture" in Sunnyslope. Our goals include helping restore people's dignity and purpose, community respect helping St. Vincent de Paul dining room to be viewed as a good community neighbor since it is a hub for the homeless and low income neighbors who congregate in the area. We encourage the homeless to keep the streets clean and care about the community.
