“St. John’s is Alex’s lifeline. We want Alex’s life to be the best it can be for who he is, and if we can help we’re going to do it.” An intimate interview between Alan Thornton SJCS President & CEO and Carol Barth, passionate parent, advocate and supporter. Carol shares why her family chose SJCS in 2007 to support her son Alex and why they are financially supporting SJCS now. St. John’s Community Services is so much more than an organization, we are trusted like family, and even within the chaos of this pandemic, we are working in every way possible, to keep each of the individuals we support healthy and safe, so that they can keep striving to live their best life.
The novel coronavirus has changed many things, it has changed the way we work, interact, and communicate. It has created new standards of health safety. It is currently changing the economic landscape of our country as we all hunker down and wonder what it will be like to return to our daily lives. “During these times of uncertainty,” has become the first line of every email that hits our inbox, but during these times, one thing is certain, and that is, that COVID-19 has not changed the dedication of the team at SJCS. We are proud of how our team members have reacted in this pandemic, their level of selflessness, their caring for the vulnerable individuals they support, and their flexibility to help out in any way possible. Our team is amazing and have truly proven to be champions in the midst of this crisis.
