The hosts for each monthly visit have included various church groups including ChristCare, Ringing Praise, Outreach, Church Council and even families just getting together to help those in need. The responsibilities for our hosts include making a meal for 40 people (as we encourage the hosts to eat with our guests), serving the meal, packing lunches for the following day and all set-up and clean-up. It is a two hour commitment at the Tempe site once a month.
Since COVID, our hosts have been making the meals at home and meeting up at the Tempe Church parking lot where the foods are handed off to Glenn and/or Claudia. One of them then delivers the meals to the I-HELP guests at the facility where they are staying. This is because we are not currently hosting the I-HELP guests at our location.
Desert Cross hosts I-HELP on the fourth Tuesday of each month.
