Hope for San Diego


Mercy and justice for the poor and marginalized are at the center of God's heart.   As the platform for mercy ministries at Redeemer and a separate 501(c)3 non-profit, Hope for San Diego enables us to partner with other churches and multiply our efforts towards bringing renewal to our city. 

Hope for San Diego raises awareness, engages volunteers and provides financial resources to trusted affiliates (local non-profit agencies) who are holistically and sustainably serving poor or marginalized populations across the city.
