Shelter Services for Men

During the winter of 2020-2021 (Nov. 1 to April 30), St. John’s will be operating a second shelter site for men only at the Bay Lake City Center, 2nd floor, in downtown Green Bay. This second shelter site allows us to socially distance guests and meet the safety requirements from the CDC without having to turn anyone away during the harsh winter months when a pandemic is also deeply impacting our community. This temporary shift for the 2020-21 shelter season helps provide for the health and safety of people experiencing homelessness as well as our broader community. St. John’s provides night-to-night temporary emergency shelter at the Bay Lake City Center to adult men only. We believe in meeting each guest right where they are at. Programs and services are then offered in the context of the furtherance of human dignity to assist each guest in goal attainment and self-sufficiency.

Women seeking shelter will be served at St. John’s Homeless Shelter, 411 St. John Street. Click here for details.
