St. Johns Housing Partnership is registered 501(c)(3) non-profit organization and member of The United Way.
For the past fifteen years, St. Johns Housing Partnership has positively impacted St. Johns County, Florida and the surrounding area by making housing more affordable for citizens in need. We have accomplished this by working closely with generous individuals, organizations, and institutions throughout our community.
Our unique approach has been extremely successful. With the help of private and corporate donors, government entities, and various foundations, SJHP has been able to expand service offerings and reach a wider geographical area—ultimately helping change more lives.
We have come a long way since our inception as a basic emergency home repair program in St. John’s County. A few of our noteworthy accomplishments include:
- The award-winning Hancock Place—a green-certified development for first time home buyers
- The creation of a counseling program that provides foreclosure and credit counseling services
- The weatherization and stabilization of more than 1,200 rental homes across 20 North Florida counties through our multi-family residential weatherization program
The St. Johns Housing Partnership team is comprised of highly trained, well-qualified, dedicated individuals. We are steadfastly committed to serving the housing needs of North Florida’s most deserving citizens. However, we know that our mission would not be possible without the support of the individuals and groups who have believed in us from the very beginning.
Do you know what an ALICE household is?
ALICE refers to the population in our communities that are Asset Limited, Income Constrained,Employed. The ALICE population represents those among us who are working, but due to child care costs, transportation challenges, high cost of living and so much more are living paycheck to paycheck.
To achieve lasting change, we must first understand the population of families that are working hard but falling short in each of our communities and across Florida. The United Way commissioned the United Way ALICE Report to better understand this challenged and often overlooked population and provide each local United Way with data to promote stronger and more resilient communities.
