Phase 2 of the Hope. Home. Community Capital Campaign is focused on Socially Inclusive Housing (SIH), a revolutionary approach to housing instability and community building in Green Bay.

Our Story


The Gateway Collective is formed

Gateway Portrait 3 (9)_edited.png

In early 2023, St. John’s Ministries formed a new 501(c)(3) focused solely on the housing needs of the greater Green Bay area in efforts to help stabilize and strengthen our community. 


St. John's Ministries will continue to operate as a seasonal shelter of last resort.  The Gateway Collective, exists to ensure the successful implementation of socially inclusive housing in our area while also offering resources to help build economic and social stability.


Equitable Access

In alignment with the Brown County Community Health Plan, SIH provides equitable access to members of our community across all income levels.







Family Self Sufficiency Program (FSS)

Individuals earning up to $16/ hour

Family of four up to $23/ hour

Employed households who are above the federal poverty line but work low-paying jobs with little to no savings

1/3 of households in Green Bay don't earn enough for a basic survival budget

Over half of seniors in Green Bay fall within this income category

Households desiring to keep cost of living competitive while still accessing desirable downtown living

Access to intentional community spaces, on-site services
