Rosalinda’s daughters showcase children’s outfits in St. Vincent’s Fashion Show & Luncheon

Dear St. Vincent’s Family,

On behalf of St. Vincent’s children and mothers in need – like Rosalinda, we are hoping you can help!  Rosalinda came to St. Vincent’s with an infant and a toddler, and was struggling just to put food on the table. She was a grocery store cashier without career goals. But, after two years in St. Vincent’s Family Strengthening Program and with the help of her case managers her life improved.  The future for her children was uplifted. Rosalinda is now a full time property manager and her daughters are thriving.

“I understand that not everyone has the same story, but what I want to accomplish by sharing my story is to give someone else hope and encouragement.  If you put effort and pride in what you do, you achieve so much in life. It’s okay to reach out for help to better yourself, but don’t expect others to do the work for you.” -Rosalinda, FSP Graduate

St. Vincent’s is the longest running social services nonprofit in Santa Barbara founded by the Daughters of Charity 163 years ago in 1858.  This year is the 25th Anniversary of the Family Strengthening Program (FSP) which provides a home, childcare and complete support services for more than two years to mothers and children in the Santa Barbara community.

Your $200 donation covers one day of complete services for a mother and her two children, a home in our cottages, daycare, food, and parenting classes on our campus.

In 25 years, thousands of mothers and children have lived on St. Vincent’s campus in the FSP and received 24/7 support services.  With the help of donors like you, Mothers only pay minimal program fees and are able to save money for future self-sufficiency. We are asking for your support of mothers and children in need right here in our community.  You can make a difference in the lives of two generations today!  We thank you for considering contributing this year.  May God bless you and your family this holiday season!

Blessings,

Rosa Paredes                                         Dr. Regina Ruiz
