For 68 years, St. Vincent de Paul of Lane County’s social service programs have provided supportive resources for individuals, children, and families who live in poverty and/or homelessness, serving 35,000 people annually. SVdP operates more than 1,500 units of affordable housing and two-day-access shelters for families and individuals experiencing homelessness, offers low-barrier employment, and administers many programs that foster long-term stability. Waste-based businesses generate revenue for social services and divert millions of pounds of reusable materials from landfills annually.
