Fill-A-Bag, Feed-A-Family

How does it work? Your neighbors commit to giving a small amount of food every two months, which will provide a steady supply of non-expired, nutritious food to serve those in need. We are off to a running start in Phoenix, Tempe, Buckeye, Mesa, and Fountain Hills, where a percentage of bags collected will go directly to Christ-centered food pantries in the areas of participating fellowships in this metro-wide program.  We are hoping to stir the body of Christ in unity to display the love of Jesus to our city.  If you are interested in volunteering or getting more information about Fill-A-Bag, Feed-A-Family, click here to see the info page or for more information contact Oscar Barajas at 602-346-3383 or at chammann@phoenixrescuemission.org.

Come Watch the Babies!

The last Saturday of every month our Mom's do a big clean-up of the Changing Lives Center campus. We call it "All Hands" cleaning day. We need six volunteers to care for the children, and hold the babies while our moms make the CLC sparkle! Check it out in our "Special Events" tab in prm.volunteerhub.com.

You must have a love of kids, a Level 1 Fingerprint Clearance Card, and interview with Volunteer Services. Reach out to Jayna at jwatts@phoenixrescuemission.org or (602) 688-6218. Youth (14 and older) may serve with an approved parent.

Childcare Providers - Childcare Assistants

Most of the women that enter our Transformation Program at the Changing Lives Center are mothers, and have their children with them when they arrive on our campus. They are hoping to find safe, stable, and loving place for themselves and their children. Without the help of childcare volunteers our capacity is limited, as we simply cannot serve all the children and mothers that rely on our Childcare Center that serves babies and children up to five years of age. Will you help by taking one shift, 10-2pm, one day per week, every other week, or one day each month? A level-One Fingerprint card and TB test are required.


BRIDGE Teachers - Men

We have a wonderful opportunity to go into the jails and provide a class on transitioning back to the outside world for inmates. Because of a connection with one of our teachers, many men find their way to hope and transformation at the Community Solutions Center. We need men who can teach a set curriculum with a heart to reach these forgotten people looking to change their lives.

Teachers - Financial Stewardship and Sexual Purity Class

Do you have a passion for the Word of God and the ability to teach on these important topics with our men at the Community Solutions Center? We provide the curriculum for the six week series to be taught on Monday evenings.
