Ringing the Bell

Celebrating employment success at SJW has a new ring to it; literally. And it’s becoming a client highlight.

This morning a client came in and asked if we had rung the bell yet, because they didn’t want to miss it.
The client’s excitement is a testament to the success of our new employment recognition program, Ringing the Bell.

When the bell rings at St. Joseph the Worker, the atmosphere explodes with joy because we know that a client has just secured employment and has taken a significant step toward ending his or her homelessness. This moment in time allows our staff to celebrate the clients’ success and share in their joy by providing them with a gift card, bus pass, and most important – gratitude for gaining employment.
