I-HELP is a program comprised of about 7 southwest valley churches, each who provide a meal and a safe place to sleep for up to 12 adults who are currently without a home. These guests go through a screening process and are connected to the program’s licensed Social Worker, who helps to facilitate their getting back to an independent lifestyle.
Every other Friday, The Refinery hosts up to 7 guests at our campus. Guests arrive at 4:00pm, we provide dinner for them at 6:00pm, lights out at 10:00pm, then leave by 8:00am on Saturday morning. There are several ways you can serve:
Greeting/Checking guests in
Providing dinner/breakfast for guests
Morning checkout and clean up
Providing dinner on other nights at partner churches (see below)
The Refinery also covers meals on 2 different nights at 2 different locations:
Sundays at Vineyard Church 255 N. Litchfield Rd., Goodyear, AZ
Thursdays at Christ Evangelical Lutheran Church 918 S. Litchfield Road., Goodyear, AZ
In the past, volunteers served and ate with the participates, but during this time of COVID-19, volunteers are asked to drop off food to provide dinner and breakfast for the following morning.
This truly is mission work in our own backyard!
