FAQ

Services and Resources

We help the homeless and those at-risk in Green Bay with shelter and resources to get back to self-sufficiency.

Who does St. John’s serve?

St. John’s Ministries serves adult (18 and older) men and women. We are a seasonal, emergency shelter of last resort, meaning we are the last stop for individuals before an individual has to sleep on the street in the harsh winter elements.

How can I receive services?

Individuals seeking shelter are asked to call 920-436-9344 for more information about check-in times and what items are allowed in shelter. Those who are homeless or at-risk have the ability to utilize our daytime resource centers (the Micah Center and Wellspring) for services and programming. Each daytime resource center has full-time case managers, a computer lab and support groups. The Micah Center also has on-site medical and mental health/AODA services.

What resources does St. John’s provide?

The Micah Center and Wellspring each have a computer lab for those needing to use the internet, along with a variety of programming and classes. Those who are homeless or at-risk can take a class on Positive Choices | Sobriety Support | Relationship Building | Housing & Budgeting | No More Excuses | Art Therapy | Foodwise | RentSmart | Job Readiness | Ted Talks | Service Opportunities and more.

There are also five full-time case managers on staff to assist individuals in goal setting and breaking down barriers. The Micah Center also offers on-site medical and mental health/AODA treatment. The Joseph Project, a faith-based, four-day intensive job employment training program is offered for anyone at the Micah Center.

What other community resources are available?

St. John’s Ministries works closely with other like-minded non-profits, along with government agencies to guide adults to the resources they need if St. John’s doesn’t offer them.

Giving and Donations

St. John’s Ministries is a 501(c)3 non-profit and is fully funded by the community through monetary donations and donations of food and items.

If I donate, what will my funds be used for?

Over 80 percent of all monetary donations go directly to guest services. St. John’s Ministries operates two seasonal, emergency shelters of last resort (Men’s Shelter and Women’s Shelter) and two daytime resource centers (Micah Center and Wellspring). Guests are provided a warm place to sleep and a meal in while utilizing shelter, while also receiving resources at the Micah Center and Wellspring.

In what ways can I donate financially?

Monetary donations are accepted in a variety of ways: online via a credit or debit card, mailing in a check, gifts of stock, IRA qualified charitable distributions, donor-advised funds and bequests. If more information is needed please contact Director of Community Engagement Steve Schauer

Volunteering

St. John’s Ministries wouldn’t be able to serve the homeless or those at-risk without its dedicated volunteer pool.

What kinds of volunteer opportunities are there?
