  •  " If only individuals experiencing homelessness could “just get a job,” wouldn’t that solve the problem?

    Chances are that you have encountered individuals experiencing homelessness in your life and at some point have wondered why they could not just get a job. While most people are aware of general obstacles people experiencing homelessness face, few are aware of how the many things we take for granted impact their ability to maintain stable employment.

    Many people experiencing homelessness face a range of challenges with finding a stable job, including:

    • Poor credit score: Twenty-nine percent of background checks run by employers include a credit score check.2 Many people experiencing homelessness have bad credit scores because they have not been financially stable, and this could be interpreted as a sign of an unreliable employee to potential employers. Gaps in employment on a resume may also be a red flag for employers.
    • Lack of interview skills and poor physical appearance: First impressions are important in the job application process, and people experiencing homelessness may lack the knowledge and background on how to perform well  in an interview setting.4 They may not have access to the appropriate attire for an interview. Additionally, without easy access to resources like the internet, they may lack knowledge and experience on how to perform well in an interview setting.
    • Poor physical and mental health: Cheap, unhealthy, fast food and substance abuse from trying to cope with economic, social, and physical stressors can influence finding and maintaining a job. “An unhealthy mind, body, and spirit” may make it hard to transition to a 40-hour workweek.
    • Money management: Many people experiencing homelessness were not taught how to properly manage and sustain (saving/investing) the money they may earn from a job. 3

       "For I was hungry and you gave me food, I was thirsty and you gave me drink, I was a stranger and you welcomed me, I was naked and you clothed me, I was sick and you visited me, I was in prison and you came to me. Then the richeous will answer him saying, 'Lord, when did we see you hungry and feed you, and thirsty and give you drink? And when did we see you a stranger and welcome you, or naked and clothe you? And when did we see you in prison and visit you?'....

    Matthew 25:35-40

      St. Maximilian Kolbe Conference's efforts are   located in the most Southern Counties of Mississippi. Geographically in Jackson County. 

    • As an organization, we collaborate and support other SVdP Conferences, as well as other nonprofits that aid the poor, the disenfranchised, the marginalized, and those of low incomes. 
    • Without regard to race, gender, nationality, income, sexual preference, or religious affiliation, our Conference members come from, and actively participate with multiple churches, other religious and non-religious communities, nonprofit organizations, and community governments to provide needed services throughout Southern Mississippi.
    • Although, we follow Policy established by The Society of St. Vincent de Paul, St. Maximilian Kolby Conference is an independent, seperate, legal entity not governedn nor funded, by The Society of St. Vincent de Paul, nor the Catholic Church.
    • St. Maximilian Kolbe Conference is a stand-alone Conference, as a separate legal entity, not being directly linked to any single church, parish, or organization.

        The St. Maximilian Kolbe Conference has a long-term goal of developing the needed resources and facilities to assist those in-need and to reduce the homeless population along the Gulf Coast. Through your generous donations, we help the poor, working families, and those in-need. 

      Profitable  revenues from our thrift stores will someday help to provide  funds to begin the planning and development of an independent, self-sustaining, centralized Family Homeless Shelter along our Gulf Coast in collaboration with other organizations. 

    Our hope is that your deep belief and compassion for others will motivate you to help us accomplish what other many nonprofit entities have already done.



    OUR MISSION - To alleviate pain and suffering, in a spirit of charity, justice, and mercy through person to person involvement providing assistance to fill the needs of the homeless.
    -Our vision is rooted in the belief, in the dignity of all people. We strive to harness the power of the human spirit to end homelessness, alleviate poverty, and improve the quality of life in our communities.

    Your gracious support is needed and greatly appreciated.
