Last year, St. Vincent de Paul Southwest Idaho made 8,470 Home Visits. One of those was Jennifer. Living on a fixed income, just one financial mistake put her on the brink of homelessness. That's when St. Vincent de Paul stepped in, assisting with her rent that month. Watch her story to see how we work to keep our most vulnerable community members from falling through the cracks. We need your help to provide a safety net for our neighbors in need! Visit our website to donate in the #avenuesforhope campaign! The first $3,000 are matched dollar for dollar by the Home Partnership Foundation Avenues for Hope Idaho Housing and Finance Association
