Letter from Tomaž Mavrič, CM, President of the Executive Committee of the Vincentian Family, on the “13 houses” initiative
The VFEC has emphasized that the Famvin Homeless Alliance (FHA), of which the 13 Houses Project is a part, is our unique common project in the area of charity. Therefore, it must be promoted enthusiastically within the Vincentian Family to reach each member’s heart so that everyone becomes a part of this common initiative.
The homeless ranked high on Vincent’s agenda. A careful analysis of his life, writings, and conferences produces a very concrete picture of his works on their behalf.
Paul Behler was a founding member of the advocacy group Housing Our Neighbors; helped start Baltimore’s first street newspaper, Word on the Street, and was part of a Faces Of Homelessness Speakers Bureau.
The “13 Houses” Campaign is changing the lives of homeless people all around the world thanks to the collaboration between Vincentian branches.
The Vincentian Family in Great Britain is collaborating to plan “13 Houses” projects across the country, and beyond. The ambitious Vincentian spirit is truly alive in the United Kingdom!
