GREEN BAY – St. John’s Ministries – the nonprofit that owns and operates two homeless shelters and two daytime resources in Green Bay – recently launched The Gateway Collective, a new nonprofit focused on meeting workforce housing needs in the area through a socially-inclusive housing model.

Lexie Wood, executive director of the collective, said the proactive, research-based approach offers high-quality housing with an emphasis on social inclusion and community building.

It said it will include workforce-affordable and market-rate apartments with community gathering spaces and additional support services related to childcare, transportation, financial planning and employment training opportunities.

“Socially inclusive housing can be a game changer for many of our community’s essential employees, like nursing assistants, cashiers, hospitality workers, office staff, childcare workers, production workers and security personnel to name just a few,” Wood said.

The Gateway Collective management team will also include Christian Jensen and Julie Kozak.

With Wood becoming executive director of The Gateway Collective, St. John’s Ministries will begin a search for a new executive director.
