Christmas 2018 at St. Vincent de Paul!

svdp hope card

When you see someone on a street corner with a sign that says, “Homeless – Need Help,” your first instinct may be to hand them a cash donation, but we do not recommend that approach. What they all need is a safe place to stay, people who care, and a chance to get back on their feet...
