St. John Center for Homeless Men, 700 E Muhammad Ali Blvd., announced at the end of November that 219 of the men they serve moved into permanent housing during the past fiscal year.
“These men, some on the streets for decades, are now in a stable situation in which they can move forward,” said a press release from the center.
The center also announced that it will undergo renovations in order to expand the current building and increase the services it currently offers.
St. John Center for Homeless Men is a non-profit whose mission is to “help homeless men address barriers to self-sufficiency and housing so they may leave homelessness for good,” according to the release. The organization provides shelter, social services and supportive housing.
