September Community Impact

Once again, our team continues their hard work and dedication to our mission. For the month of September, we served 976 new clients. 638 clients became and/or remained employed, at an average pay rate of $16.95 per hour. Additionally, 78.4 percent of those employed clients received benefits.

Because we are serving more clients than ever before, we are excited to announce the opening of our centrally-located Donation Center. This convenient center will be the place for all SJW in-kind donation drop-offs. It is also the place for volunteers to sort, tag and hang the items for our clothing boutiques, within each office. The Donation Center is located at 5800 N 19th Ave, Phoenix – right next door to our existing 5800 office.

If you are interested in donating or volunteering at our new Donation Center, please email Deb Bacorn at [email protected]

Our clients are our reason why we do this critical work. Thank you for your continued support of our mission here at St. Joseph the Worker!
