Who we are

 Christ Cares Ministries is a Christ-Centered, not-for-profit ministry that began in 2011 as Christ Cares Clinic, a state licensed primary care clinic offering primary care to uninsured individuals and families in the greater Phoenix Metropolitan area. In 2016, in response to changing needs in the community, it reformed as Christ cares ministries, offering a variety of support groups and outreach ministries to assist individuals during difficult seasons of life. These include Cancer Support Ministry, Caregiver Support and Parents of Addicted Loved Ones Groups, Christ Cares for Kids, a social ministry outreach that serves an average of 70 families per week, and youth higher education and adult Mental Health First Aid classes. In the first year and a half of offering Mental Health First Aid classes, over 800 individuals in three states have been trained and equipped with these life- affirming and life-saving skills. 

(Formerly Wheat Ridge Ministries)

In December 2010, the Christ Cares Clinic was awarded a $35,000 three-year grant from Wheat Ridge Ministries. It is because of their support that the Christ Cares Clinic began and why Christ Cares Ministries exists today. Wheat Ridge Ministries has a long history of starting and supporting health and healing ministries within churches and communities and we are grateful for their generous support. We look forward to partnering with Wheat Ridge Ministries both now and in the future.

The Christ Cares Clinic first opened in 2012 to offer Christ-centered healthcare primarily providing services of well care and maintenance of chronic health conditions. Our all-volunteer staff consisted of medical professionals including RNs, LPNs, MDs, and PT.  In 2016, Christ Cares Clinic adapted to changes in the ministry landscape by shifting focus away from being a licensed medical facility and transformed into Christ Cares Ministries purposed to promote, preserve, and restore the mental, physical, and spiritual health needs of the community.
