St. Vincent de Paul`s help is diverse and far-reaching, but it begins in prevention. For those living paycheck to paycheck an unexpected expense such as a car repair or a child`s medical bill can set the whole household over budget. Often a small investment to help with a rent or utility bill will save a family from eviction or having water or electricity turned off and ultimately catches them before they become homeless.
