Joe's Place



Joe's Place is an innovative idea born from a dramatic need in our community. Each year close to a dozen Maplewood Richmond Heights high school students find themselves virtually without a home due to serious family difficulties. These students sleep and eat wherever friends will let them settle for a while.

As the Maplewood Richmond Heights School District struggles to find a safe haven for these youngsters, we find again and again that teens between the ages of 16 and 18 have few support nets in our social welfare system.


Joe's Place offers a small group of teenage boys what every kid should be able to expect from life: a warm place to sleep, regular meals, and someone to provide guidance and affection. Joe’s Place is staffed by qualified house parents who are interviewed and selected by the Joe's Place project committee. These individuals are members of Crossroads, serving as house parents five days a week.
