Who We Are
Our Mission is to help homeless men address barriers to self-sufficiency and housing so that they may leave homelessness for good. By providing shelter, social services, supportive housing, and serving as a hub with partner agencies, St. John Center is where homeless men “seek help, find hope, and move forward.”
Our Vision is a city where all homeless men have the resources and support they need to leave homelessness for good.
Our History started in 1986 when we began providing day services for homeless men in the Louisville area. Housed in a former Catholic church built in the 1850’s as a safe haven for immigrants following Bloody Monday, the agency still serves as sanctuary today for those who often have no place else to go.
