New Day Urban Ministries is one of only two ministries supported by the entire Presbytery of San Diego which consists of 32 churches in the region. However, volunteers and financial support come from many denominations and sources.

Our Mission

In a Christ-centered environment, New Day Urban Ministries restores lives by equipping those in need to move forward with hope by providing essential services to the homeless, urban poor, veterans and those recently released from prison in a safe, home-like setting where people are treated with dignity, respect and compassion. 

Our Vision

Our vision is to restore lives. By engaging our volunteers, our community, and the involvement of our churches, we’re able to serve those in need in our community. As we grow, we expand the numbers of those we are able to serve. 

Our Values

If you didn’t know, here’s a bit about us.

Operating in the Grant Hills neighborhood of San Diego, the ministry began in 1968 as an outreach of Point Loma Presbyterian Church and the Presbytery of San Diego and runs primarily with volunteers who are supported by a small but mighty staff.

Guided by the love of Christ and his mandate to serve with compassion and humility, New Day’s staff and volunteers take the time to listen to clients, offer them Christ-centered support, and pray with and for them and their families.

In partnership with other agencies, New Day has an impact beyond its modest size, connecting clients to services such as those that can enable them to train for jobs or recover from addiction. This type of transformational work is what makes this ministry more than merely a social service agency but rather an embodiment of Christ’s call to serve Him through service. 

Our Team

New Day Urban Ministries has a small but loving and dedicated staff that is committed to serving clients to improve their lives and help them find a better tomorrow.
