The Fight Against
Poverty and Dependence
Begins With You.

In 2007, Saint John’s was 80% reliant on government funding. Today, government contributions account for less than 30% of our funding. That’s immense progress. And it’s largely due to the significant investments made by corporations, foundations, and individuals who want to see more than just a temporary band-aid placed on the issues of homelessness, poverty, and abuse. They realize something more enduring and impactful has to happen – and we’re grateful they acknowledge us as the solution.

Grant Funders

With much gratitude, we recognize the following Community Partners, Corporations and Foundations for their incredible generosity.
Thank you for supporting our mission to unleash the potential of mothers in crisis, improve the quality of their lives and enrich the lives of their families—breaking the cycle of poverty and dependence one family at a time.
