St. Vincent de Paul's Family Services to close due to financial difficulties
This is a huge blow to the city.
The service center, which provided food and other emergency services to 60,000 people a year at North Regal Street and Trent Avenue, will close Feb. 29, though the society will continue to provide services through various Catholic Parishes on a smaller scale, Cain said.
Clients will be referred to Second Harvest, the region's food warehouse and distribution center, and the Salvation Army, which also operates a food bank.
St. Vincent de Paul provided food to more people than any other agency in Eastern Washington, according to a statement released today. In the past, the center was staffed by four full-time and three part-time employees.
