Art Taylor, Woodshop Manager

St. Vincent de Paul is more than your typical thrift store or social service agency. Our comprehensive approach to community development is changing lives by helping people achieve self-sufficiency. With basic needs, jobs and job training, affordable housing and many other programs under the same proverbial roof, St. Vinnie's can lift people like Art Taylor, Woodshop Manager (pictured at left) out of poverty like no other agency in Lane County.

This new video, "The Economics of Community Health," explores what St. Vincent de Paul does and how we help people build better lives.
