Hope of Glory Ministries
2011 Annual Report
WHO ARE WE?
We are 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 multi-purpose facility, The Hope Center*, for thehousing, 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) have been ministering twice a month (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. In 2003 we opened an office on the property of Inner City Harvesters Church to serve the needy during the week. In 2010 we moved to Centro Cristiano Esperanza Church.

What We Do
At Centro Cristiano Esperansa Church, 125 S. Veterans Blvd. we serve Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday. We have a hot lunch, personal hygiene items and food (bags), limited to items on hand. We also provide Bible studies, prayer and spiritual materials, and direction to services. Additionally, desiring to fill a gap in available services, we qualify people for low income Suntran ID cards and pay for same.
We continue to collect and seek surplus food and utilize the Community Food Bank. We have seen a continual increase in guests, now serving an average of 40 people each time we open. We invite Bible Study participation and are very encouraged by attendees (number and repeat participants). During these weekday hours, we are able to develop relationships with our guests and help them enter into other services in the community, get off the streets and increase their effectiveness in the community. From this group we have obtained some faithful volunteers.
The population we serve (those who show up) is primarily chronically homeless male adults—and folks from the neighborhood. Being near the VA Medical Center, many vets also visit us.
In 2011 we:
- Served approx. 1,500 people (since most have two plates we conservatively estimate 3,000 plates)
- Passed out 1,297 grocery bags (1 can beans, 1 green vegi, 1 yellow vegi, 1 applesauce, water/juice + other donated items)
- Provided $2,495 in personal hygiene items.
- Spent $305 for guest ID’s, SunTran ID’s & Vital Records
- Spent $2,495 in SunTran bus passes (bus travel expense increased 20% from 2010)
- Held 130 Bible Studies
We participated in the Jim Click raffle for an all-electric Nisson Leaf vehicle.
We will actively pursue the formation of partnerships and collaborations within the “caring” community, particularly with other faith-based organizations. This will aid us in our present work and provide a basis for the development of the Hope Center.
We are voting members of the Tucson Pima Coalition to end Homelessness (TPCH) and Betty chairs its Discharge Planning Committee. The relationships formed here have given us a greater knowledge of the service community and will be invaluable when Hope Center is in operation.
We also seek more donors, funders and grants—for all of our services, but particularly the purchase or lease of a property (land and/or building) for the Hope Center.
