Thank you for your interest in supporting Corazon Ministries, Inc. Our annual operating budget is approximately $300,000, including salaries and benefits. Our staff and budget are small, but our hundreds of eager and enthusiastic volunteers provide unconditional love and life-giving support to over 800 people each week!
Last year we served over 27,000 hot, nutritious meals, offered primary healthcare and dermatology services to over 2,200 guests, distributed over 4,200 hygiene packets and provided 4,200 warm showers.
While many of our guests come to CMI initially for the services, many stay for the community. A lack of network is one of the reasons for and symptoms of homelessness. At CMI, all are welcome and we believe everyone should be treated with dignity and respect.
We are able to keep expenses low due to strategic partnerships with the San Antonio Food Bank, and through donations of in-kind items. Each year we distribute over 2,500 new pair of socks and underwear through the shower ministry. Guests have the opportunity to select outfits each week from the clothes closet.
