Brunch and laptops bring hope for St. John's Shelter families
Brunch and laptops bring hope for St. John's Shelter families

As part of its annual community service efforts, Visionary Integration Professionals (VIP) prepared and served brunch to families at St. John’s Shelter Program for Women and Children yesterday morning. The company's CEO, Jonna Ward, was also on hand to present the shelter with 10 Dell Laptop Computers. The majority of the laptops will be given to graduates of the program who are now attending a community college or university, with the rest remaining in the shelter’s career center or loaned out to members of its after-care program.

“Visionary Integration Professionals’ extremely generous donation will make such a huge difference in the lives of the mothers we serve, supporting them as they work toward a very different future for their families,” said Michele Steeb, executive director for St. John’s Shelter Program for Women and Children. “We are so grateful.”  

Established in 1985, St. John’s Shelter Program for Women and Children operates the largest shelter in Sacramento County, and the only one focused exclusively on homeless mothers and children – the most rapidly rising segment of the homeless population in our community. In addition to shelter, St. John’s Shelter Program for Women and Children offers clients mental health services, GED preparation and testing, career education, childcare and on-the-job employment training at its three social enterprises – Plates Café and Catering, Plates2go and First Steps Child Development Center.

“St. John’s Shelter Program for Women and Children plays a critical role in assisting displaced women and children advance from a point of crisis to a position of self sufficiency,” Ward said. “We are proud to continue our support of one of Sacramento’s most vital nonprofits, and truly understand the importance of investing in the safety and overall well-being of Sacramento’s homeless community.”
