Much More than Money Providers
As you can see from the thank you note below, home visitors do much more than simply provide financial support. Consider becoming an SVDP Home Visitor. A current home visitor states: “If you enjoy helping people and listening to our friends in need, please contact Mike Ryder (630.355.8980 x121, email@example.com) or come to a meeting on the first Wednesday of the month at 7:00 p.m. Just try it! No commitment required. Please pray for all our friends and our volunteers. Our friends leave messages thanking SVDP volunteers. We thank you for your prayers and financial support.”
Saint Vincent de Paul
The Saint Thomas Saint Vincent de Paul (SVDP) Conference helps area families with rent and utilities. Two SVDP Home Visitors meet those in need in their homes, gather information, assess their situation, and say a short prayer with them. They may help the family and refer them to additional resources. The following Thank You was received.
“Dear Saint Vincent de Paul,
Thank you for listening and financially supporting me for my rent last month. You helped me when I was really down and helpless and you restored my hope and faith in God and his people and in myself.
Thank you for your love and support!”
