Saint John’s Hospice is a Catholic Social Services shelter for men located in Center City Philadelphia. Established in 1963 by Monsignor Anthony J. O’Neill, Pastor of Saint John the Evangelist Church, and The Little Brothers of The Good Shepherd, Saint Johns was created as an outreach ministry to serve and assist the poor and homeless in the community.

Saint John’s continues to provide crucial, life-sustaining services with dignity, respect and compassion to homeless men in Philadelphia, serving over 3,000 meals each week as well as providing showers, clothing, mail services, case management, medical assistance and counseling for all.

This is possible thanks to the on-going support of individual donors and organizations that believe in Saint John’s mission and support its good work. Because of them, Saint John’s is able to carry out its Gospel-driven mission and continue to serve those who are suffering and in need.
