We want to reaffirm our collaborative work to help our neighbors prosper and become self-sufficient as they face many adversities. Our process strives to improve the delivery of services and have a clear understanding of our social services and support of our home visit ministry.
Community Connectors (Exciting New Program)
Community Connectors is a new program that enables our neighbors to secure information about other food bank locations, housing assistance, help with utilities, health care, job readiness, education and other benefit areas that they may not know about. A big part of that is having knowledge about what programs and services are available to help.
Our specially trained team of staff, volunteers, and service providers work to engage with neighbors at the SVdP Georgetown Food Bank as they come to get food on Tuesday, Thursday, Friday, and Saturday. (SVdP Georgetown Food Bank is one of many across Seattle involved in the Connectors program). Our team has been trained to also refer our neighbors to services that are available and from which they might benefit and assist neighbors with completing applications for enrollment in programs to receive services.
Named after Rosalie Rendu, co-founder of the Society of St. Vincent de Paul, our Centro Rendu program provides Latino and Hispanic families with education, case management, legal services, leadership development and civic engagement opportunities. Centro Rendu advocates for individuals and families in crisis and works to strengthen communities and future generations. We partner with faith-based communities and public school districts to help parents engage more effectively and authentically in support of education for their children. Currently, we assist people in their homes as well as at our Centro Rendu Education and Social Service Centers in both our Burien, Kent, and Renton thrift store locations.
Georgetown Food Bank
Our Georgetown Food Bank is an important community service center that annually serves thousands of families and individuals with food. People coming to the Food Bank can expect to receive quality produce, meats, dairy products, frozen foods, and of course non-perishable items. We also have a special FACES program (Food, Assistance, Compassion & Emergency Services) that serves our homeless neighbors every Friday.
