Neighborhood Ministries' mission is to be the presence of Jesus Christ, sharing his life-transforming love, hope and power among distressed families of urban Phoenix, igniting their passion for God and His kingdom.
Our Outreach programs are designed to meet our clients’ most basic needs including food and clothing assistance, safety, youth programs, crisis housing, and medical and dental services. Our Empowerment programs have grown out of our long-term relationships, realizing that the children we serve need case management, academic support, college or trade school placement, and workforce development. Since 1982, NM has: 1) Provided the basic necessities to the underprivileged in the urban Phoenix community; 2) Provided a safe, alternative place where community youth can congregate after-school and engage in enriching activities such as sports, the arts, etc.; 3) Provided the urban Phoenix community with resources necessary to break the cycle of poverty and abuse that has existed for generations; and 4) Provided a place where whole families are nurtured, from the parents to the children, promoting family unity and community responsibility.
The urban Phoenix community that Neighborhood Ministries serves is vastly different than other parts of the city. Many of those we serve are kids who turn to drugs, gangs and crime to dull their pain and sense of despair. All of the youth we serve have grown up impoverished and most have struggled in homes filled with domestic violence, drugs, physical and sexual abuse, and gang activity. Nearly all lack healthy role models and the resources needed to break the cycle of poverty and set them on the path to a brighter future.
