In April, Amber Swick, senior at the University of Louisville’s Kent School of Social Work, completed her capstone project at Tranquil House. Amber organized a clean-up and beautification of Tranquil’s courtyard. The clients were given the opportunity to help clean up the space and plant annual tulips.
Amber chose to get her masters in social work to advocate for people with special needs and mental health problems. She chose St. Vincent de Paul Louisville for her practicum semester because of Tranquil House and to gain more experience working with those with mental health illnesses.
Tranquil House provides permanent housing for clients with a diagnosis of a severe mental illness or be over age 62. St. Vincent de Paul Louisville offers case management to tenants, and tenants are able to use the resources and assistance available on our campus.
