Hope of Glory Ministries is dedicated to helping the homeless and needy people of Tucson and Pima County, Arizona. Our first call is to exhibit the love of Christ by our attitude and service, and then to see that Christ is formed in them through presenting the Gospel. We intend to provide an inner-city shelter facility with on-site services, The Hope Center, for the housing, teaching, and restoring of Tucson’s most precious resource–its men, women and children.
We are currently working with other local groups to establish a Medical Respite Center for the homeless here. In order to do this we need the support and cooperation of those who share this vision. http://tucsonhope.org
WHO WE ARE:
We have been serving a hot meal to the homeless since 1996. We began in Santa Rita Park and then on the property of inner city churches.
NOW we are outside, with monthly outreaches at the Downtown Library. In February we served 125 (mainly) homeless people!
We continue to inform and elicit support from other churches, ministries and social service agencies for our vision, The Hope Center, a 36,000 + square foot facility we intend to establish in inner city Tucson, for the housing, teaching, and restoring of Tucson’s most precious resource—its men, women and children.
In 1996 a group from Faith Community Church, desiring to minister to the needy of inner city Tucson, joined with members of Church on the Street, Phoenix, who had been coming monthly to Tucson to feed and minister to the homeless. Since then we (and members of several other churches) ministered (to 50-150 men, women and children) at various inner city locations. In November of 1999, we incorporated as a 501(c)(3) organization, The Hope of Glory Center, Inc.
