  St. Joseph Center takes a comprehensive view of the challenges that poverty and homelessness create for people, integrating many services into long-term solutions that provide the advantage of sustainable change for more than 6,500 men, women, and children annually.  
  St. Joseph Center helps the most vulnerable homeless individuals move from the street into permanent supportive housing. Since 2009 we have helped more than 250 chronically homeless men and women from Santa Monica and Venice move into their own apartments, with a retention rate of 94%. We also offer street outreach, emergency services, crisis intervention, case management and referrals in Venice, Santa Monica, Culver City, and other Westside communities.  
  The Center provides enough groceries each year through our Food Pantry for families to prepare more than 150,000 healthy meals at home. We also served more than 27,000 hot, nutritious meals at Bread & Roses Café, our innovative free restaurant for homeless men, women, and children.  
  SJC offers a compassionate alternative for those unable to manage their government benefits due to mental illness. Our staff assures that formerly homeless mentally ill men and women -- including veterans -- remain housed, in treatment, and on a path to self-sufficiency.  
  More than 1,500 working poor families benefit from the Center's services each year. We provide job training and referrals to improve employment situations. We also provide safe, creative environments for children of all ages through all-day childcare and family recreational activities.
