St. John’s Residence for Boys, Inc., is a voluntary, not-for-profit foster care agency providing holistic services to abused, 'dependent and neglected children ages 9 through 20.
In the course of our work, our aim is to assist clients in resolving the issues that precipitated placement, resulting in a healthy family reunification. For those older children who lade family resources or whose situations warrant a different course of preparation, our focus is geared towards helping our young men acquire the skills that will enable them to live independently.
Compelled by the Gospel message, our mission of helping children and families in crisis has
not wavered since our founding in 1868. Through the provision of holistic and strength-
based residential education, treatment and care, we dedicate ourselves to the healing,
development and well-being of the children and families we serve, assisting them towards
family permanency and the realization of their own self-worth and full potential.
