Janine's Testimonial

This is a testimonial of a client helped by SVdP.  Janine’s husband had become ill and was no longer able to work, and then she lost her job.

Janine’s story is not uncommon. Unexpected crises do happen, and we at St. Vincent de Paul help people to navigate through them.  We are only able to do this because of your caring  and compassion.  

Please give generously to our mission so we can continue to provide hope and help to those in need.
