I (Lexie) have been employed as the Executive Director at St. John's for a little over three years. Often, we are complimented on the amazing work we do, and today, I would like to draw attention to the men that have been instrumental both in the inception of the shelter (since the beginning) and in my professional development. None of what we do would be possible without the great leadership of my past (and current) chairs on the board. Dan Robinson, Tony Pichler and Mike Westenberg have all served as Chairs since I've been hired. In that time, we've expanded our capacity, undergone multiple shelter renovations, developed new programming, and bought and opened the Micah Center! Today marks Mike Westenberg's last day as my chair before Julie Massey steps in to fill those shoes on July 1. Thank you to these incredible men! I feel honored and humbled to work under their leadership and to have the opportunity to lead and care for those that call St. John's home. ... See MoreSee Less

Julie MasseyMy thanks as well to these great leaders I have the honor and challenge of following. Couldn't think of attempting to "step into their shoes" without the excellent staff at St. John's and Micah Center, and the ongoing support of past and present trustees!

Prayers of gratitude for all that has been and all that will be ....and for each and every person that has been a part of the effort - past-present and future! Many great people from all walks of life all willing to share of time, talents, donations and TRUST in where the Spirit is leading.

Christopher GerardenI never met the men behind the scenes as a guest but would like to thank everyone of them for their leadership in making St. John's a compassionate place that makes people feel like human beings. I had no idea what to expect when I entered those doors for the first time. I was made to feel like person instead of just a number. It was obvious that everyone cared greatly about us. Lexi, case managers, security, and most of all the volunteers that took time out of their days whether it was to serve us food or clothing or just to talk to us when we needed a friend. I am proud to say that I have had my apartment for 14 months now and none of it would be possible without St. John's ....once again I'd like to thank everyone involved in the whole orginazation.

I (Lexie) have been heavily impacted by two videos this week. One I shared a few days ago...if you haven't viewed it yet, check it out in the timeline below (about the need to provide resources to homeless and struggling veterans). This is the other one. It's the most real, raw music video I've seen to bring the issues of alcohol addiction to light. I can insert so many faces into this video- some of the most genuine, loving and dear family members of ours from St. John's are facing this struggle even today. Please hold them in your thoughts and prayers. Thank you for all you do to support our mission and our guests. Together, we can restore hope.
