About St. Vincent De Paul
When a member of our community is hungry, cold, or hopeless, where do they turn? If they are like most in our community, they turn to St. Vincent de Paul The Dalles.
Needless to say, the last six weeks have been trying on the whole country. We are no different at St. Vincent DePaul of The Dalles. We were fortunate to be able to work with Hood River Shelter and receive a grant to house around 70 folks in motel rooms in Hood River and The Dalles to keep them from harm's way from COVID-19. These are homeless folks over 60 and those with compromised immune systems that would be at risk greater than normal and not have a place to shelter in place. This program will be ending shortly, and they will be back on the streets. We currently provide food for them in their rooms, and some that still are on the streets, visit our meal site on a daily basis.
