Together, we create pathways out of homelessness and poverty through compassionate care, dignity and respect

Supporting People in Poverty Supporting people in poverty has been a core part of St. Mary’s work for decades

We have seen how loss of employment, disability, trauma, and family or relationship difficulties are often contributors to homelessness when someone is already living in poverty. People who suffer from mental illness and substance use disorders are also at higher risk of homelessness, especially if they do not have a support network. Over the last few years, as the cost of housing in California has risen sharply, we have also seen a corresponding rise in the number of people who are homeless. In San Joaquin County, more than 1,000 individuals live without shelter on a given day. St. Mary’s and its partners, supporters, and volunteers are committed to creating solutions to this crisis.

Homelessness is about people who do not have homes, and each individual has unique circumstances. At the core of every interaction on our campus is respect and dignity. We value every guest and walk together with them to meet their needs. This is who we are, how we approach our work, and why hundreds of individuals find their way to St. Mary’s every day.

From daily provisions (hot meals, showers and clothing) to services that enhance mental and physical well-being, our resource team ensures that every individual has what is needed to not only conquer the day, but to also create a path to permanent housing.

Learn more about St. Mary’s critical programs and support services for guests as well as the many ways we are developing solutions to help make homelessness rare, brief and nonrecurring in San Joaquin County.
