St. John’s Program for Real Change - Power Inn

St. John’s Shelter is the largest shelter in Sacramento County and the only one focused exclusively on homeless women and children. Its program provides career education, on-the-job employment training, vocational rehabilitation and other supportive services, including transportation and a stable living environment. Saint John’s is a "person first" approach, versus housing first. In short, clients earn their housing — and it’s up to them to continue earning it. As they are told often: We can’t be working harder on you than you are working on yourself.
