Transforming lives through employment

St. Joseph the Worker’s objective is to help remove barriers by providing the resources necessary to gain and maintain employment. We offer our clients a hand up, not a hand out—building on their strengths and helping to reduce or eliminate any barriers to employment.

We are thrilled to announce the close of our most successful fiscal year to date at SJW! The 2015-2016 numbers speak for themselves:

  • 3,423 dedicated SJW clients obtained new employment
  • The average starting pay was $9.76 an hour
  • 52% of the jobs offered benefits
