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.”
Friends, new and old, will come together on Saturday, March 3, 2018 for St. John Center’s 12th annual Raisin’ the Rent, our biggest fundraiser that supports our mission. In 2017, 182 men left our shelter and moved to housing.
The 2018 event will be held from 7-11 p.m. at the Mellwood Art Center, 1860 Mellwood Avenue. All profits go to support St. John Center for Homeless Men, which provides the resources that help to change the lives of homeless men for good.
RTR patrons will be able to dance to live music from Louisville’s own The Remedy, taste some delicious hors d’oeuvres by Bristol Catering, and bid on a variety of quality silent auction items. Katie George with WDRB news will emcee the evening, and Trey Morris, auctioneer with Menish Auction Group, will entertain guests with games and fundraising efforts.
The cost is $30 for tickets purchased before February 17, 2018 and will then increase to $40 after that date. Patrons can register for tickets online at bidpal.net/rtr. This year’s event is sponsored by Charah Inc. and Atria Senior Living. For more information, to register, donate an auction item, or become a sponsor, call Keith Steer at (502) 568-6758, ext. 31.
