We're So Grateful For You!

You bring hope to those who need it most.

Thanks to your care and compassion, a hot nourishing meal is provided every night of the year at Paz de Cristo. Hundreds of Veterans, seniors, working poor and people experiencing homelessness find a safe place where hunger is satisfied, and hearts are full.

And you don’t stop there.

Clean clothes and hot shower give our guests a fresh start. Personal, one-one-one assistance helps people secure shelter, get benefits and land new jobs.

More than a meal, hungry neighbors in need discover a lifeline of essential resources to help them get back on their feet.

You fuel our mission to Feed, Clothe & Empower. You make all the difference!
