We would love your help! Any time you are willing to donate goes a long way for our organization. Take a look below to see how you can get involved in the next few weeks.
We carry out homeless missions across all of Phoenix. HOPE for the Homeless organizes Recovery meetings and brings them to the Homeless where they gather, like the Andre House and C.A.S.S.. In addition, we support the meeting attendees with food, blankets, clothes, new socks/underwear, toiletries and other basic necessities that we package in our HOPE bags.
Our ultimate mission is to establish inpatient recovery rehab dedicated to serving the homeless through support and opportunity. Learn more about how you can get involved below.

Addiction and homelessness often goes hand in hand. But there is HOPE.
HOPE for the Homeless organizes 12 Step recovery meetings and brings them to the homeless. We currently facilitate a meeting every Sunday at the Andre House followed by a meal. Each Sunday is hosted by a different group or organization to Chair the meeting and sponsor the meal. The third Sunday of the month is HOPE for the Homeless' day.
After the meeting we serve the meal we prepared the previous Saturday and distribute HOPE bags and donations.
The Andre House would like to add more meetings during the week. Additionally, the new St. Vincent de Paul shelter on Washington and 28th St is looking to host additional meetings.
If you'd like to host and meeting with or without a meal please contact us using the form below.
Day: 3rd Sunday of Every Month

The HOPE bags are distributed throughout the Phoenix area by the following organizations:

The bags are the perfect icebreaker for opening up dialog and ministry. The ultimate goal is to offer life changing solutions!
On the 3rd Sunday of the month we handout the bags during our meal service at the Andre House.
We also encourage anyone to grab some bags and hand them out as you see the need. They can be picked up at the bag packing event or arrangements can be made by emailing us.
