"They're homeless fish," said Jeff Conroy, director of St Vincent dePaul North Idaho during an interview on Friday, April 23, 2010 at the HELP Center in Coeur d'Alene. The Fish Guys out of Spokane donated the returned, unwanted fish. (Kathy Plonka / The Spokesman-Review)

In July 2009, St. Vincent de Paul North Idaho opened a one-stop shop for social services needed by poor and homeless people. The H.E.L.P. Center – Helping Empower Local People – houses 21 agencies on a staggered schedule in the city of Coeur d’Alene’s old library building 201 E. Harrison Ave. Since it opened, the number of people served monthly jumped from 534 to 1,281 in March/Alison Boggs, SR. More here. (SR Photo: Kathy Plonka)
