St. Joseph Services (SJS)

Inspired by the vision of St. Vincent de Paul, St. Joseph Services educates youth and adults, developing values and talents through collaborations to strengthen communities. St. Joseph Services educates youth and adults at community centers located in some of Chicago’s most stressed and under-served neighborhoods. They creatively leverage an extensive volunteer force and neighborhood collaborations to provide out-of-school programs, tutoring, sports, computer and literacy classes, and job readiness training at low or no cost. St. Joseph Services believes that regardless of their situation, families and individuals can become pillars of strength in their local community, active members of a faith community, and role models for the next generation.
