You can make an Impact.
Help care for vulnerable kids and families in our community and beyond.
MISSION Impact – local and global.
MISSION has a long history of caring for vulnerable kids and families both in our own backyard and around the globe. Wherever we go, we work closely with partner organizations who know the unique issues and local areas very well and have a hunger to make a positive change.
The ministries and programs of MISSION Impact seek raise awareness, raise financial support, and offer help to fix the systemic and emergent causes of exploitation, poverty, and illness among vulnerable kids and families.
Throughout the year, we will have opportunities for you to travel and be a part of a Global Impact trip, work alongside our Local Impact Partners at Serve Day, provide month donations during Impact Sunday, and give financially during our Season of Impact. Keep scrolling to learn how you can be involved.

DCS - Giving Tree
Last year, we did our first ever Giving Tree as a part of the Season of Impact to help provide Christmas presents for vulnerable kids in our state who otherwise might not have a whole lot to look forward to. According to our local impact partner, DCS, your generosity accounted for over 25% of all the gifts given to kids in the foster care system last year. This year, our goal is to sponsor Christmas for 500 kids. You can participate by selecting your adoptee off a giving tree in the courtyard during one of our Sunday services this month.
Our Global Impact Partners
The nation of Malawi is one of poorest on earth and the HIV/AIDs epidemic there has only contributed to the problem. Since 2007, MISSION has partnered with Somebody Cares to help care for thousands of orphans and vulnerable children in a village called Chikudzulire. Over the years, we have provided access to clean drinking water to the village and surrounding area on top of supplying meals to the kids there as result of our Season of Impact.

Affordable housing is something that we often take for granted without realizing how many families go each day without a place to call home. 1MISSION is a community development organization that gives people in poverty the opportunity to earn a house by serving their community. We have partnered with 1MISSION for almost a decade and not only provide financial support but also send multiple teams to help build homes each year.

Access to clean drinking water is critical for life and health and should be a basic human right. In the nation of Malawi, already the poorest in the world, millions do not have access to safe water. MalawiH20 is fundraising to build wells for the water-starved area of Malawi called Chikudzulire. So far, the organization has launched 13 wells and has plans for more.

Our Featured Local Impact Partners
MISSION is dedicated to fostering partnerships with DCS (Department of Child Safety) throughout the entire year. Through our impactful collections, we consistently gather essential items aimed at benefiting foster children and the parents who provide foster care. In our most recent endeavor, we distributed a generous supply of 232 empty backpacks, enabling foster placements to replace their reliance on plastic bags with brand-new, sturdy bags for their personal belongings.
This year, our mission extends to sponsoring 500 foster children to ensure they experience the joy of receiving Christmas presents they might not otherwise have received. It's important to note that last year, thanks to your unwavering generosity, we contributed a significant portion, accounting for a remarkable one-quarter of all the gifts distributed across the entire state of Arizona. Your support is truly making a meaningful and positive impact on the lives of foster children and their families.

Phoenix Dream Center
In 2020, a disturbing trend emerged, revealing a staggering 98% increase in online attempts made by sex traffickers in their relentless efforts to recruit vulnerable children. Shockingly, the average age at which at-risk youth fall victim to the clutches of sex trafficking in Arizona stands at a mere 13 years old.
Amidst this grave concern, the Phoenix Dream Center stands as a steadfast guardian, unwavering in its commitment to combat human trafficking and facilitate the restoration of lives shattered by this heinous crime. Their multifaceted approach encompasses the provision of safe and secure housing, spiritual nurturing, the application of a family systems model, access to advanced education, and therapeutic healing.
Notably, the Phoenix Dream Center has designated rooms that are poised for renovation, a pivotal step in expanding their capacity to rescue more children from the clutches of human trafficking. It is with immense gratitude that we acknowledge the tremendous impact of your generosity during the 2022 Season of Impact, as MISSION is able to sponsor the complete renovation of one of these rooms, ushering in hope, safety, and transformation for those who have suffered the most.
