Sharing a human interest story by way of stalwart conference leader, Doug Hebert:

"C.R. is a 44 year old single female who requested help with her rent. She is a professional person and has worked as a licensed massage therapist at a local clinic for the past 15 years.

She has been able to afford a market-rate apartment in the Interbay area, where she has lived debt-free, until 2 years ago. During that period, she had 14 foot surgeries because of her diabetic condition, which got progressively worse.

She recently had a below-the-knee amputation that required a month of rehabilitation and was unable to work. Her clinic values her employment and has provided her with a receptionist position until she is healthy enough to return to her profession.

Our SVDP Conference provided her with the necessary rental assistance to help avoid an eviction. We have also made follow-up telephone calls, providing her with other resources to assist her with the financial and emotional needs during her rehabilitation.

Thank you for your support."

Spending a little time in Havana this weekend reminded me of how few material possessions many people have & how much we in the USA and other developed countries have and often take for granted. The Cuban people have big hearts and they celebrate life.

Visiting two schools to donate some collected toys from friends, it really opened my heart to see the smiles on the little faces. In the Vincentian spirit of giving and helping, "thank you Cuba"! My heart will always be with you. More to come!

[01/21/16]   In Washington DC this week on my work routine, it amazed me how many people out there that need help. Made me feel really sad about the realities of poverty that exist everywhere, but also good about the mission that we are fulfilling!

Go Vincentians! -- Nick

[01/17/16]   Happy New Year, Friends!

I am proud and honored to be involved with the St. Anne Conference of the St. Vincent de Paul Society. The passion with which my colleagues approach their collective goal—to help those in need—is awesome! I'm also struck to my core to see and hear about the challenges that our clients face day after day.

I want to share a story provided by one of our conference leaders.

This is story about a person who I will call ‘Jennifer’ (not her real name). With a positive work history, and college degree, Jennifer was faced with a medical emergency that wasn’t fully covered by her medical insurance. She lost her job and was evicted from her apartment because she could not pay her rent. She became homeless and was forced to live in a shelter. Jennifer lived off her savings and unemployment insurance. Proactive by nature, Jennifer reached out to a friend who invited her stay with her until she got back on her feet. But, her friend lived several hundred miles away and Jennifer could not afford to transport all of her belongings to her friend’s home. That’s where the St. Anne SVdP Conference team stepped in to help. After talking to Jennifer about her urgent need, the team quickly turned around a $200 payment to a national moving company to ensure Jennifer was able to relocate with her needed furniture and other belongings.

We’ve heard from Jennifer since her move and she’s doing well and getting back on her feet. To be clear, though, the $200 that we provided Jennifer was a result of YOUR generosity! Without your help, this would not have happened.

This is just one of hundreds of stories that your SVdP team encounters every year. While each story is unique, our team’s ability to help those who need financial assistance would not be possible without your help. If you would like to make an impact today, please either send in a donation to the SVdP team care of the St. Anne Church office, give at Mass, or wait for our new Facebook ‘donate’ button to go live in the next week or so.

Go Vincentians!
