Community Purpose
St. John had 64 homeless individuals documented at 2012 Point In Time Count. St. Johnians rallied to instigate our own Project Homeless Connect in conjunction with United Way and the Department of Human Services. During this event we offer medical services, clothing, food, and other referral services during the Day Of Caring to help these people make the connections that may help get them off the streets.

What's your passion?

Men's clothing (new and used - including belts, hats & shoes) can be dropped at Kilroy's laundry for the upcoming event in February. Stay tuned to the Community Calendar for confirmed date of the event and to the Volunteer Network on this site for volunteer opportunities! Thank you.

Generator Backup Wish Fulfilled! What a wonderful asset for St. John Rescue and for St. John, to be able to make our own medical Oxygen, even in the event of a power outage (Think, Hurricane season!) Oxygen saves lives for many kinds of medical emergencies. -Craig Barshinger
