Vincentian Connections, Wednesday, May 18 (formerly Learning at Lunch) noon to 1:00 pm and 6-7 pm. This “special edition” of Vincentian Connections virtual meet-up will focus on the newest referral partnership available to Vincentians who are caring for neighbors 55 and over. Providence Health is sharing with us the details of their Program of All-inclusive Care for the Elderly, PACE. Jeremy Edmonds joined us for the Council meeting in April but barely had a chance to scratch the surface on what this program offers and definitely not enough time to explore how a referral to PACE might help meet the needs of older neighbors and help them stay in their homes.

Vincentian Connections, Wednesday, May 25(formerly Learning at Lunch) noon to 1:00 pm and 6-7 pm. In this month’s Vincentian Connections virtual meet-up we will focus on the ways to minister to our unsheltered neighbors. Homelessness in Seattle/King County has reached epic proportions, making ours one of the urban cores with highest rates of homelessness in the country. Despite eviction moratoriums, many conferences report receiving more calls from neighbors facing homelessness or already living unsheltered. Click here to register on Eventbrite.
