Twice a month, Victory houses homeless women. Through the help of Lutheran Social Services, we provide them with a place to spend the night, a shower and a meal. If you think you might be interested in this ministry, call Bev Locke at 480-854-2546 or come and see how it works on the second and fourth Thursday of each month. Plan to arrive at the Food Bank gate about 6:00pm. We can always find a task for you and the ladies love to visit with us.
SUPPLIES NEEDED: We are always in need of travel size toiletries, sun screen, deodorant, and feminine hygiene products. The Victory “supply closet” also supports Family Promise, Food Bank clients and Shirley’s Angels. Your donations are not wasted!
Victory collaborates with LSS-SW and ten other churches in Mesa to help single women experiencing homelessness find their way back to productive lives. The Interfaith Homeless Emergency Lodging Program (I-HELP) has grown from sheltering homeless women in Mesa two nights a week to 365 days a year. Every other Thursday, more than 20 women arrive at Victory about 6:30pm. The LSS-SW van picks them up at Paz de Cristo in downtown Mesa and takes them to a different church each evening. At Victory, we provide a light meal, a chance to shower, and a safe secure place to sleep for the night. Our volunteers also pack a nutritious lunch for the following day.
