Amy and Jon enjoyed the Raisin' the Rent in March, but the fun didn't stop then. Pictured with Nolan and his dad, Justin, they enjoyed a Cincinnati Reds game in August. Thanks to a generous donation from John and Sallie Cunningham, Amy and Jon supported St. John Center and made family memories, too.

AT YOUR SERVICE
Before we open each morning, the clipboards are in place for staff members or partner agencies. From foot care to Veteran's services, from housing counseling to crisis counseling, from employment support to legal assistance, the clipboards are an open invitation to seek help. By 3 PM, hundreds of questions have been answered, referrals made, and, in the best world, some hope has been restored. The men are supported as they take the next step, as they move forward. Then at 7 AM the next morning, we do it all again.
Thank you for all the ways you make it possible for St. John Center to open the doors again and again, and allow those who need us to seek help, find hope, and move forward.

Good times at the Raisin' the Rent Party '17 just keep coming! Jeff McCaffrey of Deming Malone Livesay & Ostroff won the St. Joe's Picnic VIP tickets at the Rent Party silent auction. Jeff enjoyed Picnic 148 and said, "I get to support two great agencies, attend two fun events, all with one auction item! I'll be back!"
Plan now for Raisin' the Rent 2018 by marking your calendar for March 3.

John sees the ShelterWorks program as his big breakthrough. A partnership of Kentuckiana Works and Louisville Metro Government, ShelterWorks seeks to increase the job skills of individuals living in shelters or on the streets. John is one of 17 graduates of the two-week long training that teaches light manufacturing skills, and certifies participants in a number of OSHA standards. SJC's Employment Specialist is seen on graduation day with John, who had three interviews arranged before leaving that day, then calling potential employers to thank them for the interviews. He now works for $15/hour in a full time position and called Keesha to say, "I love my job."
We love it, too!
Thanks for making it possible to connect clients to resources, create a pathway to success, and provide loads of support along the way. http://ow.ly/i/xTDeq

St. John Center guests, volunteers, and staff enjoyed the solar eclipse this afternoon. What an awesome event to experience together! We're back to work now, so that when a total solar eclipse is visible in this region again, homelessness will be a thing of the past. http://ow.ly/i/xTAbO

DIGGING DEEP! Greg is digging deep to be able to change his situation. He is one of 8 St. John Center guests participating in a 2 week job training program at the NIA center, focusing on light industrial work skills. After the 8 AM - 4 PM training day, he takes a break, then heads to his temp job at RiverPort. His shift there is 8 PM - 4 AM. I so admire how he is gutting out an exhausting schedule in hopes of getting a permanent pay job with a good wage. He wants to be able to make his own way. We want it for him, too.
(Many thanks to Metro Government, Workforce Development, and St. John Center's partnership that made the training available and accessible. We love it when a plan comes together!)

1619FLUX: Art + Activism, a non-profit art space dedicated to social justice issues, will soon feature artwork from two St. John Center guests. Please support the opening of “Neighborhood Revitalization & The Creative Flow” on Saturday, April 15, 5:00 PM to 10:00 PM, at 1619FLUX, located at 1619 W Main Street. Weather permitting, one of our artists even plans to set up his easel outside and paint throughout the day, reminiscent of his time doing street art in New Orleans.
Kara, Jessie, and Anne with 1619FLUX have thoroughly enjoyed meeting the men at St. John Center and witnessing all that is being accomplished here. They hope for a continued partnership that will help spread the word about St. John Center. We hope to support their visionary work as well! After the opening, visit www.1619flux.org for times to visit the gallery.
