A living space that feels safe is key to a person’s ability to navigate difficult periods in life. With the support from donors and volunteers, the Society of Saint Vincent de Paul is able to:

  • operate shelters and drop-in centres, providing individuals a safe place to go for warm meals and rest;
  • provide affordable housing to families and single women and men in need.

For more information on programs held in your area, or on how you can support our shelter and drop-in programs, please reach out to an SSVP location near you, or contact the National Council Office.
