SVDP has received and managed hundreds of both government and foundation grants over its 38-year history. Moreover, SVPD is a nonprofit that generates the bulk of its revenue for social service programs through its extensive recycling and upcycling businesses.

New 8-plex at The Annex on Amazon

New Transitional Housing for Families

St. Vincent de Paul Society of Lane County, Inc. (SVdP) broke ground July 12 on a new eight-unit transitional housing apartment complex adjacent to SVdP’s First Place Family Center at The Annex, 4060 W. Amazon Drive. The homes will be supportive housing for local families who are transitioning out of homelessness — and will serve as a resource designed to bridge the daunting gap they face between emergency shelter and long-term housing. The project is made possible by a $2 million donation from CBT Nuggets, a Eugene-based online IT training company.
