Welcome to Jesus Cares, Inc.

We are a faith-based ministry. We rely completely on the provision of God for all our supplies and for the hands to help bless our homeless brothers and sisters.

For over eight years, every Friday, rain or shine, Jesus Cares, Inc. has served hot soup and more to the homeless in downtown San Diego and gone world wide to assist the needy and bring the gospel.Click here to learn more about ‘How Jesus Cares Began’. 

We accomplish our service by trusting and obeying God, and with the unconditional support of volunteers!  

How You Can Volunteer To Distribute Food in Downtown San Diego:

No reservations or sign-up is required. Join us any Friday at 5:00 PM


We ask that you contact us for location information.

Our New Challenge:

Recently, a new bill has been passed that requires all food to be prepared in a Health Department approved facility. This requirement begins January 2019.

Although several organizations have decided to end their service to this needy community, Jesus Cares, Inc. is fully committed to continuing to serve hot soup and food to the homeless in downtown San Diego.

We are in the process of raising funds to purchase a kitchen space that will be Health Department approved.   This will allow us to continue our service…and to invite other ministries and organizations to utilize the Jesus Cares, Inc. Kitchen.

Our goal is $777,777.7

we will trust our Lord with His perfect time for this project.
