At the heart of St. Vincent de Paul service is the “home visit,” where volunteers visit neighbors in their homes. Neighborhood group volunteers make thousands of these in-home person-to-person visits annually. These visits help determine the exact nature and detail of help required. Home visits are effective because they give us a true and more accurate assessment of the needs of the individuals and the family. People who need help often don’t have to take time off from work, arrange for child care, or find transportation. [Learn More…]
