What We Do

How We Serve

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.”

We offer two complimentary programs that help our clients break down the barriers that stand between

homelessness and housing.

We are changing the lives of homeless men for good.  Below are some of our most critical services we provide.

  1. Daytime Shelter – we provide a safe place for homeless men during the day.
  2. Basic Human Needs – we provide photo ID’s, birth certificates, transportation, and even hot showers that are essential for every human being.
  3. Legal Services – Homeless men can receive legal counseling and assistance from our partners.
  4. Outreach to Veterans – Homeless vets can get the help they need from our in house VA professionals.
  5. Housing Counseling – Homeless men can receive the guidance they need to apply for housing and support as they move through our Supportive Housing Program.
  6. Employment Assistance – Homeless men can receive critical job training and help finding work again so they can become self sufficient.
  7. Intensive Case Management – We assess the needs of every homeless man who visits St. John Center, and provide case management as they move from homelessness into housing.

Permanent Supportive Housing Program:

This program combines housing with the support of a case worker to enable chronically homeless

men to obtain and maintain their own apartments. Each client in the program works closely

with their case manager during their home visits and life skills classes to achieve the

following goals:

  • housing stability
  • increased level of skills
  • increased income
  • greater self-determination


Participants in the program consistently report a dramatic improvement in both their physical and

mental health, making them more productive citizens in the community.


Currently, we work with over 92 chronically homeless men in supportive housing. The cost to place one

of these men in housing is $4,000 per year. You can help give our clients a place to call home by

becoming a monthly donor. DONATE
