St. Vincent De Paul Church:
On the Question of the Homeless
Residents of Our Park

    “Consider the park a transitory living
    space for homeless people, with
    access to services and an active
    ministry of the parish of St. Vincent
    de Paul Church.”
Letter of Inquiry
– Weinberg Foundation
– Small Program Grant

Project would:
1. Establish a park resident council
2. Provide training and skill-building
As a Catholic church, with the call to be a
community which includes the poor, disaffected
and exiled as an explicit part of our mission
statement, we recognize that telling the homeless
to "move along" will not solve a larger problem.
