La Mesa Ministries operates a resource center in Mesa. We walk alongside brothers and sisters and help connect them with needed services. From filling out forms, to making appointments, to catching a ride to an interview, we are here to help.
In addition, we provide:
- Mail services for official documents and letters for those who cannot afford a post office box
- Caseworkers who can help find housing solutions based on individuals’ needs and situations.
- One on one personal assistance with ID’s, Driver’s License, Birth Certificates, and Social Security Cards. There is also assistance with Federal Assistance applications.
Most importantly, people entering La Mesa Ministries will immediately see and feel the love of Jesus. On the walls, in the music, in the Bibles and literature available to read and especially in the love and compassion of those who serve – Jesus’ love and forgiveness will be everywhere. The Gospel will be shared, and prayers spoken.
La Mesa Ministries offers a financial management class every Tuesday at our office at 805 N Country Club Dr., Mesa, Az. 85201.

Important Document Assistance
Most employment and housing opportunities require that you have certain original documents to qualify. These documents could be a state issued identification card or driver’s license, a social security card or a birth certificate. If you need to acquire one or all these documents La Mesa Ministries can assist you in obtaining them. You may also need government assistance for health care or nutrition. We can help with that too. If there is an important document, you need help assistance with please reach out to us.
Free short- term temporary storage is available to individuals who enroll into the financial management class and are employed or actively searching for employment. Personal belongings will be kept safe for several hours while their owners go to medical appointments, job interviews and other meetings. Their personal items will be stored until housing or shelter is obtained.
Our prayer is that this service results in new opportunities for our brothers and sisters to move forward in their lives, storing the love of Jesus in their hearts as they go about their transformational days.
