Dear Friends of the REST program,
The REST Program is on track to begin its final season which will run from November 1, 2017 to April 30, 2018. The end of REST is a movement toward better outcomes for our guests. At St. Vincent de Paul Society, we believe shelter should not be a destination but a brief stopping point on the way back into housing. Best practices across the nation show that low-barrier Housing Ready Shelter that actively moves guests into housing is a critical part of ending homelessness.
We appreciate the congregations coming together one more time this winter to take care of our REST guests. I am about to begin the preparations for the 2017/2018 REST season and appreciate your support in making this a success! Thank you.
Suzanne Walker (Marin REST)
