Night of Shelter

St. John’s continues to operate without a winter capacity, recognizing that as a seasonal, emergency shelter of last resort, turning someone away due to capacity would mean subjecting that indivdual to the streets in harsh winter elements.

The COVID-19 pandemic has exacerbated Green Bay’s pre-existing issues, including cost-burdened households and a prevalent mental health crisis, and contributed to an overall increase in sheltered guests. With a building capacity of 84, St. John’s was consistently sheltering 110-130 guests per night in the months of January and February 2022.
