WHAT WE DO
WHO WE ARE
Founded in 1980 by the Sisters of Mercy and the Catholic Diocese of Norwich, St. Vincent De Paul meets the needs of the poor and homeless in greater Middletown, Connecticut. A four-pronged mission, St. Vincent's provides nutritious meals through our community Soup Kitchen and connects people to basic support services and emergency funds through our Community Assistance Program. We also operate the Amazing Grace Food Pantry and a Supportive Housing Program serving individuals with disabilities.
JOIN THE CONVERSATIONSpear Park crime chance for change
Councilman Bob Santangelo had it right when he asked the question: Where will they go? The Middletown Press reported on June 10 that city and federal officials are pondering changes to Spear Park. The concern is that many individuals who use the park are demonstrating behaviors that are unacceptable and should not, as Mayor Drew said, "be tolerated in public."
Indeed, as long as we have been involved in the life of Middletown this debate has raged. Perhaps it is time to reframe the conversation to include an analysis of who the individuals are, why they are at Spear Park, and what could be done to assist them in having more meaningful lives.
We know who they are.
