St. John Center for Homeless Men is open 7 days a week, 365 days a year. We serve homeless men who are fathers, sons, brothers, and husbands who battle a myriad of issues that lead to their homelessness: mental illness, complicated and chronic health issues, drug or alcohol addiction, and poverty.
In the last 12 months, an average of 2,000 men visited the shelter 65,000 times to find help, hope, and refuge. That is why we do what we do; our mission is to help homeless men address barriers to self-sufficiency and housing so that they may leave homelessness for good.

When the Louisville music community heard about thousands of dollars stolen from a 3-year-old with Leukemia, they stepped up in a big way. WDRB reports there’s a benefit planned for Addie Roberts at Jim Porter's Good Time Emporium. On St. Patrick's Day, families can come between 6 and 9:30 p.m. There is a minimum donation of $10 per person to get in, but children five and under are free. Kyle Nunn, a former family friend, is now behind bars at Metro Corrections accused of stealing $9,000 from her charity, Addie's Army, by pretending to set up a Jason Aldean concert for her. Fifteen bands initially signed up to play, now there are 26. Mom's Music and Guitar Center children's bands are also expected to perform. " Events coordinator Bryan Leras said, "Jason Aldean's management has contacted us and said they'd like to provide merchandise, signed merchandise, to provide for the benefit that should accumulate a large amount of money."

LEGOS for LEUKEMIA
LEGOS for LEUKEMIA was founded in 2009 by Christian Flanders in Denver Colorado as a way for Christian to honor the memory of his father, and as a way to give kids fighting cancer and other life threatening diseases a fun and creative way to deal with not so fun days that include chemotherapy and bone marrow transplants. Christian’s story inspired Aiden Johnson’s mom to help the kids at Kosair Children's Hospital. Aiden is under going his second battle of ALL (High Risk) Leukemia, and while he is in the hospital, to pass the time, he builds lots of Legos. It helps bring hope, laughter, joy and just plain fun to all the kids battling cancer just like Aiden.
To donate new Lego sets, you may drop them off or mail gift cards for Walmart, Target, ToysRUS or anyplace that sells Legos. Find out more HERE!
