Geographic areas served: Southern Arizona

Programs: GAP Ministries, a social service nonprofit serving Southern Arizona since 1999, Stands in the GAP for those in need in two core areas: Family and Community. GAP cares for foster children and works toward the healthy restoration of families. We provide food and necessary items to the needy through outreach and partnerships. GAP believes we can impact the lives of children, families and communities, one life at a time. GAP's mission is simple: Standing in the GAP for those in need. Bringing help to children, healing to families, and hope to the community. FAMILY: GAP cares for over 400 foster children and teens annually in 14 family style group homes in Tucson. Siblings are able to stay together while in care due to the larger size of our homes. GAP helps foster teens and young adults learn the life skills necessary to successfully “age out” of foster care and into adulthood with mentoring and independent living programs. To better deal with the root causes of the foster care crisis, GAP is a local provider of court-mandated visitation programs for foster children and their birth parents. We are also certified by the state to provide training and licensing of foster parents. It is our desire and goal to see healthy restoration of families when possible. COMMUNITY: GAP’s Community warehouse shares fresh food and basic needs items with over 90 Southern Arizona nonprofits serving the needy. Almost 1 million pounds of healthy vegetables, fruit, and other perishable items are distributed annually throughout the community by GAP’s partnering nonprofits. Throughout Southern Arizona, nonprofits that serve the marginalized annually receive close to $1,000,000 worth of hygiene items, paper goods, cleaning supplies and other needed items from GAP’s warehouse. Through partnerships with nonprofits, churches, businesses, schools and hundreds of volunteers, GAP’s outreaches serve food, backpacks, and toys at Christmas to low-income children and their families. Our Community Kitchen trains young people in the culinary arts, while maximizing the use of donated perishable food and feeding thousands in the community. Feeding programs include the Flowing Wells School District’s 6 elementary school after-school programs, with two Amphitheater schools.

I am a foster parent and Incredibly disappointed, Policies were not followed. Policies put in place for a reason! Foster parents were repeatedly lied to by staff who could not get the story straight. This is not OK in any situation. It leads one to ponder what other policies were not being followed, or are not being followed on a regular basis. There is only one star because there was no Other way to post a review. I would not want to have GAP ministries near my FC again.

We are sorry to hear that you have had a difficult experience working with our staff, and appreciate your comments. I would be open to speaking to you to see if we could remedy the situation in hopes of gaining back your trust in our ministry and the work we do for the community. You are correct, GAP does have certain policies and procedures that must be followed and I would like to know if an employee is not meeting those expectations (or requirements). Please feel free to reach out to me directly so we could discuss further. Again I appreciate your honesty and hope to hear from you. Call 520-877-8077 and ask for the Visitation Supervisor.

I began working for GAP Ministries in May 2018 as a Visitation Supervisor. As I was welcomed into GAP I found GAP Ministries is much, much more than than providing a safe environment for children to have visit with parent/parents. GAP serves the community in so many ways. I can offer the parent an opportunity to have lunch (at no cost) with their child/children while having a visit. Not only does this help the parent financially but the people who are being taught a skill in the culinary school. The children in GAP’s Splash Houses ‘shop’ at GAP. Children I supervise are excited showing off the new shoes or clothing they received. GAP does much more than the areas in which I work and see each day.

I was introduced to GAP Ministries almost 5 years ago. I volunteered for 8 months and then was asked to join the "Wonderful Staff". I have worked at GAP Ministries for 4 years this month and I would never leave this wonderful Ministry. I have worked in many departments of GAP Ministries and I have been truly blessed by being in this Ministry.

GAP Ministries is amazing! The work they do to serve foster children and their families is awesome, but that’s only part of the story.

Their culinary and auto-mechanics job-training programs are focused on not just a “handout” but a “hand up”. They do everything with love and excellence.

One of my favorite things about GAP Ministries is their willingness to collaborate with other charities to mutually serve the Tucson community. The Community Warehouse that they house and facilitate is a perfect example of this. The warehouse generously serves so many and because of GAP Ministries our whole community is strengthened and brought together.

I have watched GAP expand its services over the past 5 years since I first came across it and have been amazed to see what God has done in and through this amazing ministry! So many people and families have been blessed by all that flows in and out these doors on a daily basis - group homes that allow siblings in foster care to live together and not be separated at such a traumatic time in their lives, a warehouse that supplies non-profits with reduced prices on all kinds of housewares and goods, supervising visits for DCS whose children have been removed from them and the family is working towards reunification, a diner that serves lunch every day and caters all kinds of events, a culinary school giving offenders a second chance at learning a marketable skill, a garage that offers full-service automotive needs and also offers a training component, assists and supports families to become licensed foster parents, and I'm pretty sure I have missed something. If there is a need in the community, chances are that GAP is either meeting it on some level or in partnership with those who are! WHAT A BLESSING!

My husband and I volunteered a number of years at GAP. He was very handy and could do almost anything, so they called us "The Builders." I was a builder by association. I would read the directions and get the next tool or piece ready.

He became ill and we were no longer able to come. He passed away a month ago. This week was the first time I had been back. It was like a homecoming to me. GAP has a special place in my heart.

I am a previous employee and was drawn to Gap for its inherit charm and ministry. A family of believers working together for the good of Tucson. I would have gladly stayed for a career based solely on the heart and vision of their work. Unfortunately the upper management become quickly overwhelmed and unsupportive of their employees. I don't think this was their original intent, but the organization grew too fast without taking care of its people. After working there for years my boss's boss didn't even know how to pronounce my name (which is hardly reminiscent of the family life they tout) Gap is a wonderful example of how good ministries and non profits can plumit into catastrophic toxicity. Many who have left have found better ways to serve Tucson, be appreciated by their managers and actually earn overtime pay. Many are still trying to unlearn habits formed in their toxic work environment. My heart goes out to the direct support who are there for the right reasons and they're doing right by the people they serve -but as a whole Gap needs to revisit how they treat their employees. Make your employees feel appreciated and they will always go above and beyond -work them to the bone, leave them stressed out and traumatized and you'll have what Gap has created.

We are sorry when an employee leaves our ministry feeling unappreciated or under-valued for their contribution. It is not our intent and certainly not the heart of this ministry for any employee to leave with hurts and wounds from management or the pressure of ministry. We are continually working to reinforce best-workplace practices by teaching that all employees must be honored, valued, and heard. We acknowledge that this field of ministry and all social work, in general, has an inherent issue with turnover due to the stresses that are involved. We currently have selfless management teams who continually work on solutions to alleviate some of those stressors. We never want good and passionate staff to leave our ministry and that is why our office is always open and our HR department is always available as we welcome current or former employees to sit down and discuss solutions for the difficulties that come with this form of social service work.

I came to GAP MInistries as a retired member of higher education. All of the academic experiences I have had pale in comparison to being with children who so desperately need so much. The children in the care of GAP Ministries get to see a 'family structure' and experience care and safety and trust. This agency is one of the top in the state!

Jesus said, "Let the little children come to me, and do not hinder them, for the kingdom of heaven belongs to such as these."
As a Volunteer I have witnessed the amazing blessing of Gap Ministries bringing help to children, healing to families, and hope to the community. From serving the marginalized, caring for foster children and working toward the healthy restoration of families, sharing fresh food and basic needs items with over 90 Southern Arizona nonprofits serving the needy, to providing hygiene items, paper goods, cleaning supplies and other needed items. The list goes on and none of this would be possible without Jesus at the center of it all. The Holy Spirit is truly present in this place serving God’s people and especially the most vulnerable.

Gap ministries changed the direction of my life. Living in one of there group homes I was blessed with amazing house parents who led me to know the Lord and begin to build a solid foundation. They emphasized the importance of education, relationship with God, and constant personal growth. With out Gap I would not know God, I would not have graduated college, or resolved feeling of grief and loss. I am able to give back to the ministry now and am so impressed by all that gap ministries does . Thank you gap ministries for all you do!

When I moved to Tucson I wasn't really looking for a job but needed to get out of the house. I volunteered at GAP Ministries for 8 months and then became an employee.

I have volunteered and supported GAP Ministries since 1999. The Team at GAP has a passion to bring healing to both children and their families. GAP staff treats the children as if they were their own children - modeling a healthy home environment, and giving them the love their birth parents did not give them. Children experience family vacations, help with daily activities such as school work and relationship building with the other children staying at the group home. Children also learn their responsibilities as a member of the “family”.

GAP Ministries is a place where children are loved, no matter where they are from or what their circumstances are in life. I volunteered in the kitchen and in the schools to serve food. Food is donated and then GAP makes sure that every single item is used to its full capacity so waste is not an issue. The kitchen staff was so friendly and directed the volunteers with ease. As a person with a Certified Food Management certificate, I appreciated the cleanliness and the procedures used in the kitchen to protect the staff and children. The food was delicious and the fellowship was even better. A great non-for-profit with amazing leaders.

I work at GAP Ministries, but my husband and I are also monthly donors, and we volunteer our time for worthy causes that GAP participates in. The leadership at GAP are humble and true servant leaders. You can find them one day meeting with legislators in the state capital fighting for the rights of foster children, and the next day in the warehouse taking out the garbage or cutting up vegetables in the commercial kitchen. My husband and I see the results of our investment in GAP in the lives of foster children, young adults trying to successfully step into adulthood without the support of their biological families, school children at low-income elementary schools, and so much more.
I would tell anyone that investing with GAP, either time or money, is good stewardship. They truly make an impact in this community!

Most every non-profit contributes to their community, but GAP goes above and beyond...they not only support one group of people or agency, but numerous. Yes, their focus Is on the children but there's so much more to GAP! They have a warehouse with donations and what they can't use, they provide to other non-profits...I've never heard of anyone else doing that! GAP is also community focused. They work with schools, numerous community agencies that help people, and various other groups in Tucson. What a GREAT organization!
And, the staff and volunteers at GAP are so personable! I have only volunteered there for a few weeks and everyone I meet is smiling, helpful, and genuine. I truly enjoy volunteering at GAP!

Old Pueblo Community Services (OPCS) provides transitional programs (housing, substance abuse counseling and employment programs) for \homeless veterans, chronically homeless or persons recently released from institutions who are reintegrating into the community. When first arriving in our programs with no financial resources, personal items, clothing and nutrition are big issues.

I volunteered for Gap Ministries for one year as a tutor for kids in one particular foster home in Gap's network of homes. I also did some manual labor to help renovate an agricultural building to house a summer camp. As for my work in a Gap Splash house, the foster parents were great. They were loving, but also provided necessary boundaries for the kids living with them. The administration provided necessary background training for me, and was very supportive. Facilities were first-rate, and community involvement was, frankly, amazing. Local and national businesses are very generous to Gap, and Gap seems to have created "critical mass" in their efforts to reach local youth and provide loving, encouraging environments for kids going through serious family issues. As someone who was going through some difficult transitions myself when I volunteered, I can gladly say that Gap Ministries and the kids I served probably did more for me than I did for them!

GAP is great at what it does, it helps serve the community and the children in its program. Not only do they support their own children but they help other organizations in the process. Working with GAP may not be physically draining but sometimes more mentally, but the eternal reward is much more fulfilling than anything you can do.

GAP Ministries strives and achieves excellence in every community outreach they sponsor. They also have a heart for every child they serve and strive to provide loving homes and parents for them. The staff and parents are incredible individuals to do the outstanding ministry they give to the children and community.

Having worked at another non-profit that works with the foster care system, I can really appreciate the dedication of GAP ministries personnel to the children living in the "system". Their Splash homes and the "home parents" really make these kids feel as though they are a part of a family. That would be a good enough review for any such organization, but GAP ministries is so much more! Their backpack ministry, food, clothing and household ministry where they provide the resources for all non-profits to have an opportunity to help their particular focus group puts GAP ministries over the top. This ministry not only cares for its own, but for the Tucson community at large. It is more comprehensive than anything I have ever seen! We are blessed to have them here!

I can't begin to tell you have much GAPministries has meant to the lives of hundreds of children in the Tucson area of Arizona. I have seen it in the lives of the children who, many for the first time in their lives, have known what it is to touch a loving hand and hear a caring word.
Our church has cooperated in a yearly trip from Utah to Gap in help in construction and remodel needs and any other needs the ministry has. During those weeks we have seen first hand how these young lives have been helped and have seen kids who have graduated become solid citizens as adults.
Not only has Gap touched the lives of the children but also all of us who have the privilege of helping as volunteers. Most of us will never be the same.
I highly recommend this nonprofit for your consideration.

I have been associated with GAP Ministries for over 12 years now and have been thoroughly impressed with the loving care that is given to these children. Coming from such desperate backgrounds, they are given love, acceptance and guidelines to help them turn their lives around and overcome the dysfunction of their past. For some of these children, it's the first time they have felt genuine love and guidance. I highly endorse this ministry to children and believe it is changing the course of scores of lives. I applaud the heart and effort shown by Greg and Pam Ayers in this difficult but needed endeavor.
