Donate here to end homelessness in the Tampa Bay Area!

A Big News Day for St. Vincent de Paul South Pinellas!

We are pleased to announce in conjunction with the Gulf Coast Community Foundation, that we are starting a new program in Sarasota County to address the homeless population.  Michael Raposa, CEO of St. Vincent de Paul CARES, says the new program intends to remove as many barriers as possible to individuals, especially those who may be ineligible for other social services. “You don’t need to be clean or sober. You don’t need a job,” he says. “This is a holistic approach to ending homelessness for this client.” 

The following links are the articles about this exciting new partnership in Sarasota:

Thank you to the donors in the Sarasota region for making this a reality, and to you, for being a part of the vision to help end homelessness, making it rare, brief and non-recurring.

You may have noticed when you read the articles that our CEO Michael J. Raposa used the name St. Vincent de Paul CARES (SVdP CARES).  As SVdP South Pinellas expands and now covers five counties, we are in the process of upgrading our brand to St. Vincent de Paul CARES.

Although we are committed to our mission here in South Pinellas and the City of St. Petersburg, we are excited to include the counties: Pinellas, Pasco, Hillsborough, Polk and Sarasota in our efforts to end homelessness.  It is our belief that the name SVdP CARES reflects our regional outreach beyond South Pinellas.
