With support from the community and generous donors, St. Vincent de Paul is expanding along with its mission in Arizona. The groundbreaking opens an exciting new chapter, which will include a full-service, renewed campus that not only offers the life-giving services to feed, clothe, house and heal, but also provide tools, solutions, and support to help individuals and families lift themselves out of poverty.
