About this organization






In 1988, St. Joseph the Worker (SJW) was founded in response to urgent pleas of the homeless while serving dinner in the park, “we want to work, but we don’t have the tools.” These individuals, though thankful for their evening meal, knew that the only sustainable way out of their current situations was to become employed. That moment of clarity in 1988 still guides our mission and fundamental belief that a job is only one true way out of poverty and homelessness. For over 30 years, SJW has provided those tools, literally and metaphorically, to job seekers willing to work their way out of poverty or prevent it from happening in the first place. At SJW, we don’t entitle, enable, or label; we inspire, empower, and hold our clients accountable to their own success through employment.
