Men and women experiencing homelessness, hunger and hardship do so year-round. Homelessness doesn’t just happen in the winter months, it can happen at any time to anyone.
St. John’s Ministries doors are open year-round, providing resources at the Micah Center and Wellspring five days a week. We also offer Drop-In Tuesday during the offseason for those seeking basic needs, such as a meal, clothing, hygiene items, a shower or case management. Those identified as chronically homeless or facing severe mental health issues are also provided shelter in our Summer Safe Sleep program.
Our mission is to honor the dignity, restore hope and create lasting change for those experiencing homelessness or housing instability. That mission drives every thought and thing we do, knowing that each person who walks through our doors is no different than you and I. Sometimes an individual is facing more challenges at the moment.
We are grateful for the community support that allows St. John’s to provide hope, first and foremost. It also provides a hand up through shelter, warmth, meals, programming and other areas of support for guests. We never take for granted the funds or items that are donated.
Did you know 82 percent of every dollar donated goes directly back to guests through assistance?
We ask you to remember that during the beautiful summer months there are hundreds of individuals in our community struggling each and every day. A gift of any size will make a difference.
$10 a month can provide a day of heat this coming winter at shelters.
$40 a month allows us to provide a day of women’s services at Wellspring.
$135 a month provides one night of shelter this coming winter.
$150 a month allows us to provide job employment training through the Joseph Project.
It is important to remember that each dollar donated is changing a life. Maybe a guest decides today is the moment they will change their life for the better.
Hope is provided through your support.
