About Us

St. John’s Place Family Center was established in 1990 as a temporary residence for homeless families in Crown Heights, Brooklyn. Our original mission: to transition homeless families into safe and affordable housing. Our founders were the Brooklyn Neighborhood Improvement Association, Citizen’s Committee for Children and Settlement Housing Fund.

A commitment to strategic planning leads to a new mission: In 1996, in response to legislative changes in welfare reform, St. John’s Place Family Center undertook a strategic planning process that resulted in a broader mission: helping homeless families achieve and sustain self-sufficiency. Toward that mission, our comprehensive programs include day care, after school programs, a training and employment program for adults, a youthbuild program, a social services program, and more.
