Urban/Community Outreach

METRO, founded in 1966 is the social and community development arm of many United Methodist Churches throughout San Diego and Imperial Counties.  Metro's premise is that their services must be transformative moving individuals from positions of dependency and vulnerability to positions of strength and self sufficiency. Their approach includes the youth, the family, the community, and local churches as part of their efforts.

The Good Neighbor Center (GNC) is one part of the Metro Urban Ministry.  Hope has been supporting GNC since the early 80's with donations from the Food Cart, Undie Sundays (new underwear for grade school children in September), and Holiday Dinner Bags.  Hope's members fill provided bags with food to make a complete dinner.  GNC distributes the bags to families in need.

Interfaith Community Services (IFC) empowers people in need to stabilize and improve their lives through comprehensive programs in partnership with diverse faith communities and people of compassion.  Located locally in Escondido, they have an excellent connection of services and resources available to individuals and families in North San Diego County.

Hope's Food Cart is filled by church members bringing canned food or staples. The food is given to the GNC and North County IFC pantries where it is distributed to those who come for assistance. 

The Youth Emergency Shelter, also known as Storefront,   is San Diego's only emergency shelter program for homeless, runaway, and "street" youth. Youth can access the shelter with or without referral and will be assured a safe place to stay until their lives have been stabilized with the help of professional caring staff and volunteers. Once each month we provide a hot dinner for the youth.
