“Feels Like Home” First Annual Fall Gala

”Feels Like Home”


About Depaul USA Thank you for attending Depaul USA’s first annual Feels Like Home Fall Gala. Your support allows Depaul USA to continue providing people experiencing homelessness with purpose and hope for a positive future. Depaul USA is committed to working in a practical and non-judgmental way with people on the margins of society, wherever there is a need, in the Vincentian spirit. We are part of Depaul International, a group of charities fashioning a global response to homelessness and serving the poorest of the poor. Depaul USA’s first project, Depaul House, is a 27-room transitional housing program located in Philadelphia, that addresses the causes of homelessness and focuses on placing residents in employment. 80% of our graduates have successfully moved into stable housing having found employment. Another Depaul USA project, Immaculate Cleaning Services, is an innovative social enterprise program that was incorporated in 2012 as a limited liability for-profit corporation with Depaul USA as its sole member. This janitorial franchise is producing unrestricted revenue for Depaul USA and employs residents of Depaul House. Depaul USA is developing St. Raymond’s House in Philadelphia that will provide 27 new single-room permanent supportive housing units, case management, and healthcare for homeless men and women with medically complex conditions. Depaul USA continues to undergo tremendous growth and has expanded programming into other cities, including Macon, Georgia and New Orleans, Louisiana. On behalf of all of us at Depaul USA, our Board of Directors and our Gala Committee, we hope you enjoy the evening and wish you Happy Bidding!

As you exit after the Live Auction, the Winner’s Board will notify you as to whether you have won an item and need to check out.

Once your payment has been processed, please take your paid invoice to a Silent Auction Coordinator, who will retrieve your item.

If the winning bidder cannot take an item for any reason immediately after the auction, the item will be taken back to Depaul House. The winning bidder can then make arrangements to pick it up at a later date.

To bid on a Silent Auction item, simply mark your Bid Number and the amount you wish to bid on the corresponding sheet.

Each subsequent bid must be at least the minimum bid increment listed.

There is no “upper limit” for your bids!

Once the auction is declared closed, the last bid entered on the bid sheet that adheres to the designated increment shall constitute the winning bid.

For all our Depaul Brothers, God is good...all the time...Keep on keeping on!!! Blessings from an Anonymous Donor

Psalm 34...a Psalm of Hope… I sought the LORD, and He answered me; He delivered me from all my fears. This poor man called, and the LORD heard him; He saved him out of all his troubles. Those who seek the LORD lack no good thing. The LORD is close to the brokenhearted. We wait in hope for the LORD; He is our help and our shield. May Your unfailing love be with us, LORD, even as we put our hope in You.
