Tuesday Ministries Services Day

Meeting the Basic Needs of The "Structurally Challenged" 

Each Tuesday since the inception of Matthew's Hope Ministries in March 2010, staff members, new and dedicated volunteers, and many of the "least of these" of west Orange County, Florida, gather at a common location to engage in what has become known as "Tuesday Ministries" Services. 


So, what happens on Tuesdays at the Matthew's Hope Outreach Center at 740 Ninth Street in Winter Garden?  Guests arrive between 8:00 a.m. - 2:00 p.m., check in**, drop off their bags and belongings, and enjoy a hot breakfast, lunch, and dinner to go.  They are offered a warm shower, shave, a hair cut, one load of clothes laundered, and new clothing if needed.  They shop for nonperishable food items in the Garden of Eatin' food pantry, or select hygiene items through a volunteer personal shopper.   


Some guests visit with staff members who assist them with government benefits, identification cards or other services.  Other guests and volunteers simply visit, play games and share in fellowship with others on Tuesdays. 


Most importantly, every guest is shown the Love of Christ through the Call to Serve as detailed in the book of Matthew 25: 35-40, from which the ministry derives its name.  Each guest, in their own unique and special way, departs at the end of Tuesday Ministries Services Day better for having been present, and better prepared to "hide in plain sight" in our shared community. 


Any and all who are within the scope of "Who We Serve"--a person who is currently homeless and has some connection to west Orange County--is welcome to arrive at the Outreach Center to participate in Tuesday Ministries Services Day. 


**NOTE:  First Time Guests participate in an extended Intake Process, including a background check.  Only those with prior sex-related criminal offenses are exempted from becoming a welcomed guest of the ministry, for legal purposes.
