Special Announcement!

               In light of Hurricane Harvey’s disastrous effects along the coastal cities and towns of S. Texas, upon our return we discovered that St. Vincent’s House was spared the horrible aftermath of Hurricane IKE of 2008.  Thank God!  Although our first floor took on about 4 feet of water, we began recovery and re-opened for some services on Thursday, August 31st.  St. Vincent’s House remains committed to providing the essential needs and services for Galveston Island and Galveston County.  Devoted staff who were already in Galveston were ready to open the doors with food and water for those in need.  The nurse-managed clinic was also open and by Friday, they had treated 30 patients who had severe medical needs during the immense rain and flooding.
               Although our elevator is out of commission right now (it took on 8-10 feet of water), and we lost some valuable sound equipment and other items, we continue to clean out the 1st floor of St. Vincent’s House which received the most standing water.  We are indebted to our staff and the volunteers who have helped us clean up during our recovery.  We are also grateful for several former clients who have come forth and worked tirelessly to help us.
               We know that you are in prayer for us as we, and many others have experienced this tremendously unsettling event, and we are sure you want to help wherever you can.  Our only dire need at this time is to replenish our food pantry.  We have distributed more than 4800 pounds of food in the week prior to and in the aftermath of Harvey.   Any non-perishable donation of canned meats, canned meals, milk, and cereal are greatly appreciated.   Financial donations of any size may be sent to St. Vincent’s using our DONATE button on this website or alternatively, you may consider sending donations to the Alliance of Community Assistance Ministries (ACAM), a network of Christian ministries in which St. Vincent’s House is a member.  This network allows us all to do the work of Christian ministry in the Houston metroplex and its surrounding counties.  St. Vincent’s House, in particular, benefitted greatly from its partnership with ACAM after Hurricane Ike 2008.  You may use this hyperlink to donate through ACAM:  www.acamweb.org
               Thank you for your continued prayers and support of St. Vincent’s House.
Faithfully,
The Rev. Freda Marie S. Brown,
Executive Director/CEO

'For I was hungry and you gave me food

 I was thirsty and you gave me drink

 I was a stranger and you welcomed me

 I was naked and you clothed me

 I was sick and you visited me

 I was in prison and you came to me.’
​(Matthew 25:35-36)
