Mission-Why are we here?To Feed, Clothe, and Empower those in need in the East Valley of the Phoenix area.
Vision- Where are we going?Our vision for Paz de Cristo is to empower our guests to reach their full potential by removing barriers so they may become more self-sufficient. Paz de Cristo exists to help them achieve self-reliance, pride and self-respect. In turn, this leads to improved economic standing, respect for others, and citizenship participation.
Our ServicesWe average over 7000 visits each month to Paz de Cristo (about 2400 unique guests). While many of our guests make multiple visits to Paz, we average about 600 individuals each month that arrive at Paz for the first time ever. The majority of these visits are for food. Food has been a critical part of our mission since our inception in 1988. Our evening meal service and our food box distribution provides more than 50,000 meals every month to the homeless, the unemployed, the working poor and senior citizens. Many others take advantage of our empowerment programs. In particular, our Jobs Program each Tuesday & Thursday, is staffed to assist in job preparation, resume writing and one-on-one support. We also provide the essentials to get a job, including showers and haircuts, bus tickets, clothes for interviews, birth certificates and vouchers for Arizona I.D.’s.
