It is a day when you can make a positive impact for the Society of St. Vincent de Paul Chicago by supporting our mission to serve our local neighbors in need.
Last year SVdP Chicago was able to help over 88,000 people with utility bills, rent, food, transportation, and medical expenses thanks to the generosity and hard work of our Chicagoland Vincentians and dedicated supporters.  Due to the economic impact of the COVID-19 pandemic, we are responding to a significant rise this winter among those we serve for food, clothing, and housing assistance.[/kswr_heading]

“I was feeling hopeless when I was given your phone number, feeling like no one cared if we were on the street.  When I called, the person from St. Vincent de Paul was so kind and told me I was not alone in this struggle, my children were important, and that she would work for me to try to keep my in my apartment.  That kindness, it was like light shinning where it was only dark before. Thank you!”

After falling behind on her rent due to the current COVID-19 pandemic, a single mother of 5 children reached out to The Society of St. Vincent de Paul Chicago.  Her five-day eviction noticed had just been served and she had nowhere to go if she lost her home.

The Society of St. Vincent de Paul Chicago was able to offer rental assistance to ensure this mother that her children would not be homeless.  We also were able to give winter clothing, diapers, and the gift of hope.

The Society of St. Vincent de Paul Chicago was there for me when I had nothing.  They not only helped me with furniture for my new apartment, I had been sleeping on the floor after getting out of the shelter, they also helped me with getting food.  I was able to visit my local food pantry for general supplies and they had a Turkey and Ham Thanksgiving Food event at St. Gall that I was able to get my holiday meal fixings.  I feel very blessed!
