Housing is more than just four walls and a roof. The Resident Services Program provides built-in support for tenants in St. Vincent de Paul's affordable housing. Our Resident Service Coordinators work with tenants to identify services that will address the poverty of information, skills, and opportunities that many have experienced.
We focus on the opportunity that stability provides and challenge families to gain skills, set goals and build community. Helping tenants build social and financial capital forms the core of the Resident Services Program. Many events and workshops are offered to tenants, that give not only the chance to learn new skills but also foster a sense of community. From daily one-on-one problem solving and support to weekly community events, there is something for every resident.

- Financial Literacy Education
