We Wanted to Help Her

As seen in the November 2018 edition of our Chronicles newsletter.

I recently heard a screeching outside of my office window. I peered out to discover a woman huddled behind our dumpster, screaming repeatedly. We want to help her. Is she cold, hungry, scared or sick? Two things for sure: she needs permanent housing—a place to feel safe—and support from someone she can trust.

I asked Chief Program Officer Nancy Yohe how many people we realistically want to house next year. Nancy replied, “We need to house at least 640 people in 2019—20 more than this year.”

St. Patrick Center has set a goal to place even more people into housing. I ask that you give generously. If you donate each year, could you stretch a little more to help us impact additional lives?

Help us provide housing and care for people like the woman we found outside. Please make a donation today in the provided response envelope, at stpatrickcenter.org or call us at 314-802-0690.
