Since January of 1999, our outreach has been an ear to homeless, treating them as individuals and gaining their trust. This approach allows them to see that there is someone in the world that cares about them and values them as individuals.
Vincent Pannizzo, founder of Mission for the Homeless, takes on the primary responsibility of conducting person-to-person outreach every night. Driven by his faith, Vincent enters the lives of those experiencing homelessness, providing hope and compassion where it's needed most.
But Vincent is not alone in this mission. A group of compassionate volunteers rally around the cause, each bringing their unique talents and resources to the table. One volunteer lovingly prepares the food for the evening meals, while another goes above and beyond, purchasing blankets, paying for food, and even providing their own station wagon for the nightly rounds. Together, Vincent and small number of supporters form a community of love and support, united in the common goal of helping those in need.
