Recently, the St. John’s Vestry increased the budget for Hearts To Homes (H2H), which will to allow St John’s to sponsor three families for 12 months each. We are looking for 2 volunteer mentors for the new families that will be starting in the next 6-8 months.
Hearts to Homes supports families coming out of homelessness that show the potential and desire to establish secure homes in our community. We partner with the YWCA of St. Paul, located in our neighborhood at 375 Selby Ave. The YWCA provides professional caseworkers and we provide a volunteer mentor for each family. The caseworker and H2H mentor work together to offer personal and financial support to the families while they are in transition. Our collaboration provides more than either of us could accomplish alone.
