Changing Lives Center for Women & Children
Transformations is our total person recovery program for homeless, or near homeless women and women with children. It offers a blend of discipleship, recovery services, group therapy, and vocational and educational services. We house up to 180 women and children, whether battling addiction, escaping domestic violence, or suffering trauma. They live in a secure, apartment-style housing with access to childcare as they receive counseling, life skills education, and career assistance.
Transforming Lives Center for Men
The Transforming Lives Center (TLC) serves homeless men and men in poverty. Currently, it houses 160 men from life-controlling problems throughout various stages of recovery. The TLC offers both long-term, as well as short-term solutions. Clients participate in discipleship including class work, recovery meetings, work therapy, mentoring, group and individual counseling, and vocational development. The program focuses on healing the total person.
Hope Coach Mobile Outreach
John was living alone on the streets when a white van pulled up with the words "Hope Coach" written on the side. "Want a sandwich?" asked the driver, who then invited him to check out the Phoenix Rescue Mission. The next morning, John went to the Mission for breakfast . . . but he ended up getting a whole lot more.
Not everyone who comes to our doors is looking for a long-term recovery program. Some people simply need a job, an income, or a temporary place to stay while they arrange housing. Robert lost his job on a technicality and found himself suddenly homeless. He came to the Mission for shelter, but found our Solutions program and changed the direction of his future.
The Mission Sharing program distributes food and household goods to help meet the needs of low-income individuals and families, and engages them for rescue. Food, clothing, water, hygiene items, and household goods are distributed to individuals and families, as well as to other agencies serving people in need.
Hope for Hunger Food Bank
Hope for Hunger is a food ministry of Phoenix Rescue. Infused with the love of Christ, the food bank is a true beacon of hope to the community-a place where caring volunteers come together to provide emergency food for struggling children, families and seniors in Glendale and parts of Peoria and Phoenix.
A solution to homelessness that works. Phoenix Rescue Mission has partnered with City of Glendale to assist individuals faced with insurmountable, life-controlling problems by offering them the opportunity to earn real wages and connect with services.
