A Ponte Vedra man, Richard lived for 28 months without running water. 

During a short hospital stay, Flagler Health+ Care Connect became aware of Richard’s situation and reached out to United Way of St. Johns County for assistance. 

Understanding that Richard’s situation was more complex than a broken pipe, United Way of St. Johns County contacted several other St. Johns County agencies, such as St. Vincent de Paul Nocatee Chapter, Krewe of the 13, Inc, St. Johns Housing Partnership, and Humana.

Collectively, the organizations were able to help Richard overcome obstacles he was dealing with.

What a testimony to what caring community can do! Love this networking and the end product! Thank you for all you do!

We recently added another thank you letter to our Wall of Thanks.

“If it hadn’t been for Lisa, I would have let my mortgage go and lose my property and home which I have worked hard for almost 21 years and my parents for thirty years before me.”

Our client is a 73 year old disabled lady who is a caregiver for her 53 year old disabled daughter. She (the mom) lost her job due to health problems and with her reduced income she became seriously delinquent on her mortgage.

Through housing counseling and our modification program, she now has an affordable payment of $672 (cheaper than rent) and is no longer in danger of foreclosure.   

Due to the lack of affordable housing, we know that many homeowners face homelessness if we are not successful. We appreciate Clay SHIP supporting our program so we can serve those most vulnerable in Clay County.

At St. Johns Housing Partnership, we help people stay in their homes and rebuild their lives! If you know anyone thats in danger of losing their home and needs help, please have them call us at (904) 819-1266!

Please consider a donation of any amount to help us help people keep their homes.

"The year 2020 has been a tumultuous one, as the nation faces the COVID-19 pandemic and its economic consequences, unrest sparked by long-standing racial injustice, and the devastating effects of climate change.

Increases in rents continue to outpace income gains, and millions of households face unaffordable cost burdens according to the latest State of the Nation’s Housing 2020 report by Harvard University’s Joint Center for Housing Studies."

Thanks for sharing!

This is fantastic! I'm resharing this right now to our page!

An insightful message from St. Johns Housing Partnership’s Marissa Vetter, Housing Counseling Program Manager on the last day of 2020.

“Today is the last day of a challenging 2020. As I packed up my belongings to leave for the day, I passed by our Wall of Thanks. Each letter and card represents a home saved thanks to our partnership with each of you.   

My heart is heavy thinking of the renters and  homeowners that have been devastated by COVID-19. 

However, I feel hopeful knowing that together we can help those most vulnerable in our community. 

I look forward to working with each of you in 2021 and growing our Wall of Thanks! Happy New Year!”
