  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 6,000 men, women, and children annually.  
  More than 1,000 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.   
  St. Joseph Center provided 20,000 grocery bags last year through its family Food Pantry and served more than 25,000 hot nutritious meals at Bread & Roses Café, an innovative free restaurant for homeless men, women, and children.  
  The Center offers help to more than 2,000 homeless individuals each year through street outreach, emergency services, crisis intervention, case management and referrals. Our comprehensive programs provide job training and placement, meals, and access to affordable housing.  
  The Center offers a compassionate alternative for those unable to manage their government benefits due to mental illness or instability. Our staff assures that formerly homeless mentally ill men and women -- including veterans -- remain housed, in treatment, and on a path to self-sufficiency.
