Journey to Housing

St. Vincent de Paul’s Journey to Housing program seeks to solve the problem of homelessness in northwestern Wayne County communities. The Journey to Housing Program supports those in need of shelter by providing them with move-in costs, furniture, household goods and monthly rent subsidy until the family can become financially independent (with 12-18 months of weekly counseling). We help the family work towards self-sufficiency and assist the family with budgeting, household management, parenting skills and more.

If you are in need of shelter, please contact your local parish and you will be referred to a St. Vincent de Paul in the Metro-West District (the cities of Canton, Dearborn, Dearborn Heights, Garden City, Inkster, Livonia, Northville, Plymouth, Redford, Wayne, and Westland). Priority placement will be given to families with children and current living situations will be taken into consideration. After an interview and evaluation, it will be determined if you qualify for our Journey to Housing Program.
