Homeless Relief Ministry

Homeless Relief Ministry (HRM) Imagine you have a family, but little or no income to feed or house them. In addition to living in poverty, what if you have disabilities, mental health or substance abuse conditions?  Anything we do in our community to help alleviate homelessness is a life changer for these families.

A joint ministry of the parishes of St. Peter, St. Vincent’s, and St. Matthew, the Homeless Relief Ministry collects donated furniture, house wares, and food items to help set up apartments for the homeless. We work with Supportive Housing Communities and the Angel House Maternity Home, two local agencies which help their clients to find apartments and go through the process of applying for assistance. Since HRM’s inception last year, we have helped welcome home 74 individuals in 41 different homes thanks to the dedication of our volunteers and generous donations of furniture, house wares and money from our parishioners.
