 In grassroots, non-profit, Where's Bill


by: Bill Somerville, Founder

The St. Vincent de Paul Community Center on San Pablo Avenue in Oakland is a comprehensive collective of services to the poor. PVF funded the foot clinic, which is an important service to identify potential diabetic problems.

In addition, there is a lunch program serving 600 a day. Preparation starts at 8am with volunteers.

There is also a men’s and women’s center for washing and drying clothes and offering showers. The main room is a counseling service where anyone can drop in.

Kathy Ahoy, a PVF ambassador and public health nurse, originally called the Center to our attention.IMG_0388IMG_0386
