Feed, Clothe, House, Heal
St. Vincent de Paul has been serving central and northern Arizona families since 1946. Programs include services for the homeless, medical and dental care for the working poor, five valley-wide charity dining rooms, emergency food boxes, thrift stores, a transitional housing shelter and general assistance for individuals in need.
T.W. Lewis Foundation Support
The mission of St. Vincent de Paul is to offer person-to-person service to individuals and families in need, regardless of race, origin, religion or gender. T.W. Lewis Foundation established a multiyear challenge grant with St. Vincent de Paul to help expand its Compassion Circle to further enable the programs of outreach that strive to feed, clothe, house and heal individuals in need in a deep and meaningful way.
"I literally went from middle-class America to a homeless shelter. I had nowhere else to go at that point. I was in shock. I was so grateful to St. Vincent de Paul; they provided me with meals and housing. I always tell this to people and it's so weird, but one of the things that made me happiest, was I had a window by my bed. I have always needed a window to look out and see the light and the world. Traditional shelters don't have windows; they're like large warehouses. St. Vincent de Paul offered so many things to make me feel comfortable. Staying there helped me get my humanity back."
