Our Team

Together,

We are Ending Homelessness

through

employment

It is our vision that, through employment, SJW will end homelessness for a significant and measurable sector of the homeless population; and further, we will prevent homelessness from becoming a bigger problem by continually increasing our reach and employing greater numbers of impoverished and underemployed community members at risk of becoming homeless. Through the work of SJW, anyone and everyone who is stable, ready and wanting to work will be employed, regardless of their situation. And no homeless person who can work and wants to work will remain homeless for lack of employment.
