The Society of St. Vincent de Paul – Diocesan Council of Austin is pleased to announce its continued involvement with the Unified Catholic Response (UCR), including our work with the Long Term Recovery Team for the 2013 Halloween Floods. The UCR includes the Society, Diocese of Austin, St.Vincent de Paul Stores, Catholic Charities of Central Texas and the Ladies of Charity of Austin.
We continue to work carefully with each other and other disaster response agencies to fully understand the long term needs of those directly affected by the floods with an eye on the case management as well as funding, timing and launch of our national House In a Box program. At this time, we expect to launch HIB for Austin in mid-Spring 2014.
* Financial contributions to disaster relief can be made via our website,
* Those interested in volunteering, please sign up to receive information when we have it
* Those in need and wishing to receive a home visit to assess your qualifications for House in a Box this Spring/Summer, please sign up.
Finally, we will continue to post updates here as they are known. Thank you for your patience, support and prayers.
