Project Description

There has been an increase of 54% in services provided at the shelter and the need will only continue to dramatically increase with the rapid growth in St. Johns County. In fact, the shelter and transitional housing are continually over capacity. More than half of the residents in the shelter are children, youth and teenagers. Mothers are in trauma and trying to rebuild their lives while looking for employment and attending appointments throughout the day. This project will help provide youth with activities, care, and equipment that is critical to developing overall positive experiences which are rewarding and uplifting.
