Saint John’s Program empowers homeless mothers with children to advance from crisis to self-sufficiency. Our 18-month Continuum of Care provides shelter, educational assistance, mental health services and on-the-job employment training at one of our three, self-funded social enterprises: Plates Midtown, Plates Cafe and Catering and First Steps Child Development Center. To date, 93 percent of graduates have been placed in employment.

Please join us in changing lives, and in strengthening our community by empowering its most vulnerable members. Through our fast, reliable and secure server, you can make a one-time or recurring donation. If you are interested in volunteering or making an in-kind donation, please contact Jamie Candelaria at We thank you for your generosity.
