Our Mission

The St. Vincent DePaul Mission of Waterbury, Inc. is a non-profit 501(c)(3) organization dedicated to eliminating the root causes of homelessness in the Greater Waterbury Area. Its mission is to make a positive difference in the lives of the homeless, hungry and mentally ill through professionally supportive relationships with caring adults, in order to assist them in achieving their highest potential of wellness and independence, and move them from poverty to an economically viable standard of living. To this end, the Mission has established a network to address each cause contributing to or allowing a person or family to become homeless. However, this can only be accomplished with the cooperation of other nonprofit organizations, the State of Connecticut, the Church, and the private and corporate sectors of our society.

 Walk in their footsteps Race for awareness 

The WALK is conducted along a 2.5 mile route that takes walkers through our Thrift Store, Soup Kitchen, and Homeless Shelter in Waterbury, so they may become more aware of the effects of poverty and homelessness, and the work that we do in response to this ever-growing problem.  The Walk in their footsteps route offers individuals an invaluable perspective on poverty, homelessness, and hunger, and an understanding of how we help those in need with the basic necessities and services they require to promote their recovery and wellbeing, and become more productive, independent, and viable members of the community.
