Building the Foundation in 2010 Mission Depaul USA’s mission is to offer homeless and disadvantaged people the opportunity to fulfill their potential and move towards an independent and positive future. Everyone should have a place to call home and a stake in their community.

History Depaul USA incorporated as an independent 501 (c)(3) in May 2008, and operates “Depaul House,� a 27-room transitional housing program for men experiencing homelessness ages 20 - 65. Depaul USA is part of Depaul International, a group of charities fashioning a global response to homelessness. Depaul International was formed in 1989 as a response to the growing number of young people sleeping on the streets of London. Depaul International charities now work with over 7,000 homeless and disadvantaged people in five countries providing supportive services, employment training, and basic needs. The work at Depaul USA is grounded in the mission, vision and values of Depaul International and the lives of St. Vincent de Paul and St. Louise de Marillac.

Dear Friends, It has been an exciting year of growth for Depaul USA. In September 2010, Chuck Levesque became Depaul USA's new Executive Director. Three days into his new position, Chuck, Mark McGreevy, Group Chief Executive of Depaul International, and I embarked on a tour of the United States to connect with other members of the Vincentian Family. The purpose of the trip was to provide an awareness of Depaul USA's mission and values and to uncover possible ways to collaborate in serving those who are experiencing homelessness. Upon our return to Philadelphia, we began planning for expansion that will allow Depaul USA to reach many more people. Within five years, Depaul USA plans to be in five U.S. cities. Projects are currently being implemented in Macon, Georgia and New Orleans, Louisiana, and we are planning an additional project in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. We know that only with the continued support of committed donors, volunteers and constituents can Depaul USA make this vision a reality. Together we can build a strong foundation for the future. Together we can make a difference and offer hope to countless people who depend on Depaul USA. On behalf of the Board of Directors, Administration and Staff, please accept our heartfelt appreciation. Bernard M. Tracey, C.M. Chair Board of Directors Depaul USA



Dear Friends, This Annual Report provides an update on the work that our team has accomplished in 2010 and how we are building the foundation for our future. I want to thank you for your support, which has been essential for our progress and growth. I am continually impressed with our staff and residents. Working together, staff and residents achieve great outcomes. Most strikingly, in 2010 80 percent of our graduates accessed employment and their own housing within a year of arriving at Depaul House. Our inspiration comes from St. Vincent de Paul, a major social reformer in 17th century France who believed in action rather than words and in seeking out what he referred to as the “poorest of the poor.� Depaul USA is driven by these values to serve our most vulnerable populations. Our projects are growing and they truly make a difference in the lives of our clients. We have ambitious plans for 2011. We plan to expand our board, improve existing programs and create new program opportunities in Philadelphia, Macon, Georgia and New Orleans, Louisiana. I am very grateful for your assistance. We would not be where we are today without your help. I hope we can rely on your continued support. I will keep you posted on our progress while on this exciting journey. Charles W. Levesque

Executive Director



Depaul House – Depaul USA’s First Project The goal of Depaul House is to move residents from homelessness to employment, permanent housing, and a savings account within a 12 month period. Depaul House serves approximately 80 men during the year, providing them with private rooms, three meals a day, interview-appropriate clothing, personal hygiene products and a wide range of intensive support services. The program is innovative in its employment-focused approach. It seeks to achieve systemic change; breaking the cycle of poverty by working with people who are living on the margins and transitioning them into mainstream society. Depaul House delivers critical services including case management, education and employment, health education and fitness, increasing financial literacy and behavioral health therapy. Key Achievements for 2010: ■

75 men were served and 59 were discharged from the program. 82 percent moved to permanent housing. 22 percent reintegrated with family/friends and 60 percent rented their own market-rate or subsidized housing. 76 percent of residents obtained or retained employment during their stay at Depaul. The average length of stay is six and a half months. Residents save an average of $550 during their time at Depaul House.

Many Thanks to Our Volunteers and Community Partners We are grateful to everyone who gives their time to support Depaul USA. Volunteers logged over 1,000 hours of service during 2010. Working in the front office, cooking meals, painting hallways, cleaning the Career Closet, organizing holiday parties and teaching adult education, photography, creative writing, nutrition and financial literacy — these are just some of the ways our volunteers have given back to us. Thank you for being part of our family. Depaul USA partners with other agencies that help us provide additional services to our residents. In addition, groups from area universities, schools, and other community organizations choose Depaul USA as a site for community service, exposing more individuals and students to the challenges faced by people experiencing homelessness.

Leap of Faith Courage and generosity only begin to describe Loralee West, who took a “Leap of Faith”, parachuting out of a plane on Sunday, June 27th, 2010 to raise funds for Depaul USA. Loralee serves as an ambassador to Depaul charities and she has made a huge commitment to the work of St. Vincent de Paul. Loralee reached her goal of raising $100,000, and, after having landed safely, she continues to increase awareness of the important work done by all of the Depaul charities worldwide. Depaul USA thanks Loralee for turning words into action through philanthropy, compassion and courage.

“The most important agenda of Depaul is independent living placement along with employment placement for those in need.” – Lyndon, graduate
