St. Patrick’s Center
St. Patrick’s Center is the agency I want to acknowledge today. It is a large organization dedicated to ending homelessness. In this regard, it provides a comprehensive list of services to homeless and potentially homeless people. In addition to providing meals and lodging, St. Patrick’s provides employment training, mental health and drug abuse counseling, and housing support services.
Their leader, Laurie Phillips is a dynamic and capable leader. She has a strong background both in Social Work and business. I am proud to be a volunteer, helping provide meals at lunchtime, and playing chess with residents one evening a week.
