People Choosing to Share Their Time and Talents.

Individuals and Groups Making the Difference.

Each of God's children has been uniquely gifted with a set of skills, talents, knowledge and experiences.  And, Matthew's Hope Ministries is fueled entirely upon people choosing to share their gifts in a meaningful way that makes a, and sometimes THE, difference in the lives of others right here in west Orange County. 


Every year since the ministry's inception in 2010, up to 50,000 volunteer hours are logged taking on projects and Tuesday Ministries roles that all share one common goal:  serving the needs of the "structurally challenged" of this community. 


How Can You Make a Difference as a Volunteer?


Community members get involved in many unique ways, falling into five main categories:


1) Tuesday Ministries Services Day - Volunteers arrive at the Outreach Center at 740 Ninth Street each week by 9:15 a.m., engage in a brief Volunteer Prep Meeting, and then step into a dozen different roles that serve the most basic needs of those who arrive.  Most stay to volunteer until at least 1:30 p.m., when services conclude. 


First-time volunteers are asked to arrive promptly at 8:30 a.m. for their initial Tuesday to engage in a brief orientation.   


2) Skilled Volunteers - Several community members with specific skills and experience volunteer in a variety of roles, from administrative support, computer skills, grant writing assistance, financial counseling, life skill and Bible study class facilitation, and more! 


Want to see if there is a way to connect your gifts with the needs of those served by the ministry?  Please contact Barry@MatthewsHopeMinistries.org or (407) 905-9500, x605 to share your ideas and get more involved!


3) Group Service Projects - Student groups, church groups, meet-up groups, corporate groups, or any gathering of people can partner with ministry leaders to plan a service project.  Projects may vary depending upon the ministry needs, and are fully determined based upon the age group, size, time frame and season of service.  Learning


Please contact Barry@MatthewsHopeMinistries.org or (407) 905-9500, x605 to plan your group's event!


4) Design a Project - Many students and groups have created their own ways of having a meaningful impact on the ministry and its work.  The sky is the limit with creative ideas!  Many have conducted item collection drives, designed cards and crafts to share with guests, prepared meal items or snacks to share on Tuesdays, and more!   


Again, contact Barry@MatthewsHopeMinistries.org or (407) 905-9500, x605 to explore ideas and details. 


5) Prepare and Serve Meals - A rotating group of fifteen (15) teams assume one meal (breakfast, lunch and to-go dinner) for each Tuesday Ministries Services Day of the month.  They prepare or purchase the food, and then have the option to deliver or stay and serve the meal to the fifty (50) or more guests each week. 


Please contact Barry@MatthewsHopeMinistries.org or (407) 905-9500, x605 for more information.  There is always room for meal donors to make a difference in the tummies of ministry guests!


Matthew's Hope Ministries works to achieve its mission only through the heads, hearts and hands of the hundreds of people who care enough to serve their neighbors!  Walk alongside the ministry . . . volunteer today!
