We are always finding new things to offer to our clients, whether it is a hot meal, a warm place to be, or to find a special treasure in our WEARhouse. Socializing and celebrating are just as important as everything else we offer. In the process of providing for these basic needs, there is a community that is created, which also addresses something that is more painful than hunger or going without. It addresses the need for connection for those who are struggling with poverty, addiction and mental health. It certainly does improve the quality of life when they can come to St. Vincent de Paul and have time for socializing and having some fun, in away it takes them away from there hardships for an hour or two.

Christmas at St. Vincent de Paul

We are a family! We all enjoy celebrating together during the holidays!

There is nothing like having fun!

“We like to have fun whenever we can. Living in poverty is a difficult situation to be in and having a place that feels like home helps to you to leave your troubles behind for a little while. The staff and volunteers have fun while they work and this creates an atmosphere that feels like a family.”
