Your contribution to St. Vincent de Paul of Contra Costa County can provide hope to someone who has nowhere else to turn. SVdP provides critical help to about 140,000 Contra Costans every year, including, among other things: medical care at our free clinic, meals for the hungry at our dining room, emergency food supplies and vouches at most of our more than two dozen parish-based branches, job training for the chronically unemployed, and a daytime shelter for families during the cold and rainy season.
