John Hughes, Chief Executive Officer of METRO Community Ministries (METRO) and Dr. Bill Jenkins, Executive Director of Christ United Methodist Ministry Center (CMC) announce that effective June 30, 2018, Good Neighbor Centers (GNC) management and operations will be transferred from METRO to CMC.

Good Neighbor Centers provide food and clothing and create opportunities of hope for underserved populations in San Diego. GNC serves over 40,000 people annually from its two locations at Nestor United Methodist Church and CMC.

Founded in 1968, GNC celebrates 50 years of continued service to the community this year.

METRO Community Ministries began fifty years ago by providing community-based supportive services, emergency food banks, and clothing closets. Today, METRO has expanded its reach by addressing three main areas of need to eradicate the cycle of poverty. These three areas are: education, and employment assistance, and leadership development.

Christ United Methodist Ministry Center became an ecumenical urban ministry in 2011 at the closing of the former Christ United Methodist Church. In addition to GNC, CMC operates two free medical clinics, clothes closet, migrant shelter, school, nursery, home for a dozen congregations, recovery ministries, and co-working impact hub for social entrepreneurs.
