St. Vincent de Paul Louisville is the recipient of a “Caring for Community” grant from HomeServe USA, a leading provider of home repair solutions. HomeServe’s grant will help fund a new project called “A Place to Lay Your Head” that will provide complete bed sets—mattress, box spring, linens and pillows—to an estimated 40 veterans as they exit the program at Ozanam Inn Men’s Shelter and move into their new permanent housing.
“Veterans are an integral part of our community and culture, and St. Vincent de Paul Louisville is providing these heroes with the support and services they need to succeed in the next phase of their lives,” said HomeServe CEO John Kitzie. “Working together, HomeServe and St. Vincent de Paul Louisville will be able to provide many veterans in the city with the comfort of a good night’s sleep, which can make a world of difference during difficult times.”
On February 8, HomeServe USA toured campus and presented a check to St. Vincent de Paul Louisville.
