We are excited to announce that Depaul USA and The Society of St. Vincent de Paul are partnering fundraising efforts to address critical issues impacting New Orleans’ most vulnerable citizens. You have the opportunity to help our neighbors in need by attending our annual event, Unmasked Dreams.
Join us Saturday, December 4, 2021 from 7-10pm at Urban South Brewery!
Unmasked Dreams will raise funds that directly support the missions of both Depaul USA and The Society of St. Vincent de Paul. Depaul USA assists people experiencing homelessness to ensure that everyone has a place to call home and a stake in the community. With the help of dedicated volunteers, known as Vincentians, The Society of St. Vincent de Paul supports vulnerable members of our community by addressing food insecurity, financial challenges, access to education, and navigating community resources.

Edward, a local New Orleanian, was displaced after Hurricane Katrina and thus began his experience with homelessness. He slept at different shelters around the city before finding the Rebuild Center.
It was there he found Depaul USA New Orleans Rapid Re-housing for Chronically Homeless Individuals (RRCHI) Program. RRCHI moves individuals from the streets and into their own apartments and provides them with supportive services to help them maintain their housing. Edward was the very first client to be housed in RRCHI in 2014 and has been housed ever since.
Edward has dived deeper into his passion for gardening, transforming the landscaping outside his apartment complex. Like a true New Orleanian, Edward also enjoys soul cooking, second lines, Saints’ games, and live music. Edward has made his house into a home, filled with his love.
