Annual Report


Thank you for your support!
Your annual giving impacts the lives of our children, teens, seniors and at-risk families and individuals.

Thanks to annual donors, we are able to count on gifts coming in year after year to support our operating budget. Even after government funding, we still need to raise a significant portion ever year through public contributions.


We invite you to review our annual report from the 2013 Fiscal Year for Marillac St. Vincent Family Services.

 Come hear Sr. Julia Huiskamp, D.C. speak at Old St. Pat's Church
Old St. Pat's Church Sunday Masses
Sunday, August 3rd
Sr. Julia will be speaking about Marillac's 100th anniversary celebrations and the history between Marillac and Old St. Pat's Church.
Old St. Pat's has a long and rich history with Marillac and the Daughters of Charity. Marillac actually started at Old St. Pat's  100 years ago. We are glad that traditions such as this can continue on and our collaboration remain strong throughout the years. This summer, these partnerships will be celebrated at Old St. Pat's with Sunday mass on August 3rd.

Giving at Any Age



St. Vincent's Outreach Program recently received a generous donation from a young girl. Rebecca Christie and her daughter Emma, a student at St. Clement's, used the opportunity of her 7th birthday party to request toiletry donations for St. Vincent's Outreach program. 
We are thankful to Rebecca and Emma, as well as their friends and family, for their generous donation and giving spirit. It is inspiring to witness such selflessness in a person so young. The donation included over 1,000 items, including soap, deodorant, toothpaste and toothbrushes, cotton swabs, shaving cream, razors, lotion, shampoos, and conditioners. 
Rebecca Christie was kind enough to share the experience in her words. We invite you to read her story by clicking here.
