Partner with Local Agencies Successful

OGT’s Phoenix Branch is passionate about developing partnerships with local agencies who provide assistance to the homeless and working poor. One of these agencies is La Mesa Ministries, whose mission is to create Christ Centered Communities among the homeless and working poor that ring hope, dignity and positive life transformation. La Mesa offers weekly meals at two locations, housing and job resources, a mobile food truck, and a clothing ministry. Phoenix Branch supports La Mesa Ministries by regularly donating much needed clothes and hygiene supplies. We recently hosted a presentation given by Laurie McClellan from La Mesa Ministries. Laurie shared the compelling La Mesa story and vision with OGT volunteers. We were impressed by the strength of La Mesa Ministries and feel blessed to play a part in their work with the homeless and working poor.
