Hope Coach Mobile Outreach
John was living alone on the streets when a white van pulled up with the words “Hope Coach” written on the side. “Need some water?” asked the driver, who then asked him about his situation and invited him to check out the Phoenix Rescue Mission. The next morning, John went to the Mission for breakfast . . . but he ended up getting a whole lot more.
John enrolled in the recovery program, and has been working on getting back to school. “Thanks to the Mission, I’ve got a real hope for the future!” he says.
Nearly every day of the year, the Mission’s Hope Coach vehicles travel the streets of the Valley, offering water, hygiene kits, socks, and other items to homeless men, women, and families without shelter. The Hope Coach is often the only help they receive.
This vital program is important for reaching those on the streets with prayer, hope, and practical steps to get off the streets for good. Teams of case managers, interns, and volunteers canvass the Valley searching out men and women experiencing homelessness, hand out life-saving Hope Totes of water, hygiene items, and socks, and provide individualized care to remove the barriers that are keeping people stuck in a life on the streets.
