ST VINCENT DE PAUL THANKS YOU An older man works as a court interpreter. During the pandemic, his work changed from in-person jobs to online jobs via zoom. This change resulted in lower pay. The man is looking for additional work, but feels he is being passed over because of his age. With the loss of his usual income, he fell behind in paying rent and called the St Vincent de Paul Helpline requesting assistance (206-767-6449). With your help, we were able to offer rental assistance and also provide additional resources. Information, Jo Ann Wiesner, 206-291-4012 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
