About Us

Our Mission is to help homeless men address barriers to self-sufficiency and housing so that they may leave homelessness for good. 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.”

St. John Center for Homeless Men is open 7 days a week, 365 days a year. We serve homeless men who are fathers, sons, brothers, and husbands who battle a myriad of issues that lead to their homelessness: mental illness, complicated and chronic health issues, drug or alcohol addiction, and poverty.

In the last 12 months, an average of 2,000 men visited the shelter 65,000 times to find help, hope, and refuge. That is why we do what we do; our mission is to help homeless men address barriers to self-sufficiency and housing so that they may leave homelessness for good.

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: the Emergency Day Shelter and Social Services Center, and the Permanent Housing Program.

Our Vision is a city where all homeless men have the resources and support they need to leave homelessness for good.

Our History started in 1986 when we began providing day services for homeless men in the Louisville area. Housed in a former Catholic church built in the 1850’s as a safe haven for immigrants following Bloody Monday, the agency still serves as sanctuary today for those who often have no place else to go.
