Thank you to the St. Brigid Knights of Columbus for donating 900 brand new pairs of socks to St. Vincent de Paul Georgia last week. Warm items such as socks are needed during the winter season because they help us provide clients who have been affected by homelessness with a warm pair of fuzzy comfort to put on their feet as Georgia temperatures drop.
These socks will be distributed to families and individuals in need that visit the St. Vincent de Paul Chamblee Family Support Center.
For 27 years, Clark Howard has been providing Christmas gifts to foster children in the state of Georgia. St. Vincent de Paul Georgia, along with WSB TV/Talk Radio, the Division of Family and Children Services, and Walmart, work with Clark to ensure that every child has gifts to open on Christmas morning.
Yesterday, over a dozen volunteers and hundreds of supporters kicked off Clark’s Christmas Kids 2018 at the Ashford Dunwoody Wal-Mart by purchasing gifts off the christmas lists of children in foster care throughout the state of Georgia.
The next time you’re tuned in to WSB Radio, be sure to listen out for the new St. Vincent de Paul Georgia commercials.

SaprotaReport recently published an article by St. Vincent de Paul Georgia’s Executive Director John Berry entitled, “Addressing Homelessness At It’s Root Cause”. In the article Berry emphasizes the importance of fighting Georgia’s rising homelessness rates through proactive community programs. He highlights how SVdP is doing its part to combat homelessness in Georgia by offering several programs including the Direct Aid Program which provides those in need with the financial relief they need to stay in their homes and avoid displacement.
We believe prevention is the most cost-effective way to address the problem of homelessness, especially when compared with the high cost of sheltering the homeless, yet very little of our federal dollars are used in this way.
