Who we are

Caring Ministries is a non-profit ministry serving Tucson and the surrounding areas. It’s our vision that everyone in Southern Arizona has the opportunity to be loved and live healthy lives.

What we do

We support local communities by providing food and resources, sharing the love of Christ to everyone we serve. Our network of partners provide sites for food distribution to those in need.


Caring Ministries has been providing food and clothing to families for over 40 years. The work began in the early-1970s when Pastor Ross Hanna started a food ministry out of Sharing Ministries Baptist Church in the Old Pascua neighborhood of Tucson. In 1992, that ministry was established as a separate nonprofit, Caring Ministries. Today as a ministry partner of Arizona Baptist Children’s Services we continue to distribute millions of pounds of food every year.
