The “13 Houses” Campaign is embracing the homeless in a network of charity and Vincentian collaboration, just as Frederic Ozanam wanted. In 3 years, Vincentians all over the world have housed or supported over 7000 people, and the Campaign is on track to reaching the 10.000 people goal. This shows what Vincentians are able to do when we work together. 

Although we are very happy with the results of this first strategic cycle, we want to take the “13 Houses” Campaign further. And we need you. We launched the “13 Houses” Campaign with the goal of having at least 1 project in each of the countries with Vincentian presence. Some, like India, Rwanda, Spain and the USA, feature more than one already, but we are still missing many countries! We want to see a “13 Houses” project in each of 160 countries with Vincentian presence!

We are launching the Campaign on the Feast of the Miraculous Medal, November 27th, and we hope to reach the 160 countries before the Feast of the Annunciation on March 25th. Are you a member of a Vincentian branch in a country without a 13 Houses project? Contact us! Join us to end homelessness, one house at a time!

We are also challenging countries with 13 Houses projects to bring more countries on board! 

In 47 countries Vincentians have started 13 Houses initiatives. In addition, Vincentians in Germany, the Netherlands and the UK have generously participated in the Campaign with donations to the Solidarity Fund. Even some individual Vincentian donors or local groups have sent donations from Austria, Botswana, Italy and Spain. We are grateful to all of them for their solidarity with and charitable participation to the work of Vincentians elsewhere in the world.
