City Vision's Partners
City Vision and St. Matthew's House Partnership
St. Matthew’s House is an incredibly innovative $17 million dollar rescue mission serving the poor, homeless and addicted in Naples, FL. Each year, they provide over 513,000 meals and housing to over 1,000 individuals. Of those, 120 are placed in jobs, and 385 are placed in housing. The leadership of St.Matthew’s realized a key strategy to remain effective and innovative is to invest heavily in the education and training of their staff. In the past 3 years, St. Matthew’s has had over 33 of their staff and others enroll in City Vision and one of their staff has become faculty.
As a strategic partner, City Vision provides a 33% discount so tuition is only $5,000/year. Also, many of their staff have outstanding senior management experience, enabling them to accelerate their degree by getting prior learning credit for their past experience. City Vision plans to partner with St.Matthew’s to design some of our free MOOC courses, so they could be taken by all their intensive residential recovery programs participants. As our partner, St. Matthew’s can better fulfill their vision of transforming thousands of lives and becoming a national model of best practices for other organizations to replicate.
“The partnership with City Vision has been one of the most important factors to equip our team to minister to the needs of the poor. Without this partnership, we wouldn’t be nearly as effective serving our most vulnerable neighbors.”
– Rev. Vann Ellison, President, St. Matthew’s House
