Here are some comments from residents who have left our shelter:

1) "When I first got here from jail I felt alone and scared, uncertain.  This place and staff helped me at every turn.  I will never forget their kindness or compassion.  I hope I can return it to someone else."

2) "I am very grateful to St. Vincent.  You're tops in my book.  Thank you.  I'll miss you all".

3) "Very impressed with this facility and every one of the staff.  You all have been such a blessing to me."
