In January of 2019 the St. Vincent de Paul Resource Center opened at 17150 W. Main Street, Monroe, WA
From January to May of 2019 we were happy to host the United Way Free Tax Prep site, where over 200 low income households were able to file their taxes at no cost to them.
We currently host the Monroe Chamber of Commerce and welcome meetings, gatherings and workshops in our classroom space.
On April 30th, 2019 the Resource Center hosted 29 employers who met with over 60 job seekers at the new St. Vincent de Paul – North Sound Council Resource Center.The event was coordinated by WorkSource and the Employment Security Department.Within the past few months, we have partnered with the United Way to provide free tax preparation and with DSHS as a connections site.We hope to host another Job Fair in the near future and we welcome other nonprofit agency partners to provide better access to services for the greater Monroe area and Sky Valley residents.
The Resource Center has now been listed as a DSHS connections site and currently provides online access for job seekers and those who need to register for services. We also provide local access to Project PRIDE (utility assistance) applications. If you live in Snohomish County you may recall included with your PUD bill is a little “Share the Warmth” donation slip.Those donations are processed through the PUD and Administered to those in need through St. Vincent de Paul administrative staff.If someone is struggling with their PUD bill they may be eligible for a once a year grant toward their PUD bill.Applications can be found on the home page of our website at www.svdpwa.com.
We are currently seeking funding to help expand the programs we provide.
