How does a family find Vincent Village?

Many families come to us from local emergency shelters including Just Neighbors (IHN) and the YWCA. We work closely with them to put families on our waiting list for the transitional shelter, Vincent House. We typically have 25-30 families on the waiting list at any given time. 

Families and individuals also call the help line funded by United Way of Allen County “211” and are referred to the appropriate shelter that fits their situation. 

Potential participants for the Phase II program must be graduates from a transitional shelter or treatment program with a referral from a current case manager. Most Vincent Village homes are in close proximity to the St. Hyacinth Community Center.
