St. John's Shelter Program for Women and Children

Women and Children Shelter. The only Shelter in Sacramento County that prioritizes women with children. We did not post the address per request of the shelter.

When a family enters Saint Johns 12- to 18-month rehabilitative program, they are immediately encircled with structure, with mental health therapy, with alcohol and drug counseling, with parenting education, with budgeting classes, with healthy relationship training, AND with hands-on employment training. All services are onsite and required. The program is designed to support women in taking responsibility for themselves and their families. Each family receives an average of 675 hours of services each month. 96% of women are placed in non-subsidized employment upon completion of our employment training!

    I recently went to St Johns on a school field trip for service learning and was impressed with what the program offers to those who need assistance starting over. It is amazing that there are organizations out there that will do this for others who can't give back. I'm proud that I got to help out and meet others who work and live there. And to whoever is reading this, never give up. No matter how hard life may get, always try to find the hope and courage of continuing and fight through the obstacles you may come across in your life. If you need help, don't be afraid to ask. There are others who will help you or someone you may know. Just try not to give up, try.
