THE SOCIETY OF ST. VINCENT DE PAUL, COUNCIL OF LOS ANGELES

The Society is an international, Catholic volunteer organization that serves the needy of any religious background free of charge. We were founded in Paris, France in 1833 by a compassionate college student, Frederic Ozanam, and for over 100 years our Vincentian volunteers have served the suffering in Southern California. We help the needy become self-sufficient by providing emotional and financial support, food, clothing, furniture, appliances, housing and by connecting the disadvantaged to helpful resources in Los Angeles, Ventura and Santa Barbara Counties. Donations to our thrift stores make our work possible. Your financial gift or donations of household items help us help thousands of families every year. To donate clothes, furniture, appliances, or even cars call us at 1-800-974-3571.

LEAVING SKID ROW

Leaving Skid Row

Leon worked in the steel mills of Pittsburgh before being laid off in the 1980s. After losing his career, he came to Los Angeles in search of work, but made little headway. Mired in shame, alcohol and drug addiction, he hit Skid Row and stayed for 20 years.

Only after one of his daughters found him, did he decide to rejoin society. He came to the Society of St. Vincent de Paul’s Cardinal Manning Center on Skid Row in 2012. Our staff offered Leon support to conquer his addictions, then helped him qualify for an apartment. Leon comes regularly to the Cardinal Manning Center to act as a mentor for other homeless men, and is joyful about his sobriety and reconnecting with his long-lost family.
