Back to School

Thank you for your support of women and children who are achieving great change! Your investment helps break the cycle of poverty through high school completion, job readiness, increased self-knowledge, early childhood education readiness, tutoring and socio-emotional supports for our growing number of children.

Saint John’s is committed to learning – for women and for children. On average, at least 20 of adult residents are working to complete their high school education and during the 12- to 18-month program, women complete 675 hours of experiential and classroom learning.

When children enter Saint John’s, we work with the school district and the Homeless Liaison to ensure continuity of their education. Children also have access to tutoring support.
