Location: Ozanam Center (St. Vincent de Paul Soup Kitchen) at 1306 Monroe
How can I help?
Do you like to cook? Visit with people? Play games? Serve meals? Transport passengers? Donate supplies? There is a job for you ... As a parish, we transform the Ozanam Center (1306 Monroe) into an overnight shelter experiencing homelessness every Thursday evening for 15 people. All we have to do is open the door and open our hearts every week together! Our season begins on Thursday, November 1 and runs through March 2019. Together we can do so much!
