Paz de Cristo was in the community spotlight on “Mesa Morning Live” Feb. 13. The nonprofit began as an outreach of St. Timothy Parish in 1988 and continues to serve the local community in need today.

A small staff and strong volunteer support network allows Paz de Cristo to serve homeless and low-income guests with an evening meal, food boxes, job support and other resources to help them become self-sufficient. The agency also receives funding from local Catholics through the diocesan Charity and Development Appeal.
