St. Vincent de Paul CommonsNow Open!

Thanks to the efforts of our entire team and the support of scores of others, we have completed conversion of an abandoned motel into some 50 permanent supportive housing units. St. Vincent de Paul Commons will reduce County-wide homelessness by 3%.

The video shows the transformation of the former motel and celebrates Catherine Diaz, the first Commons resident. If you'd like to learn more or arrange a tour of the Commons, contact Executive Director Jack Tibbetts at 707-495-7438 or -- and once again, heartfelt thanks to everyone who helped make the Commons happen!

 Our Thrift Store Returns!

Great news! Our St. Vincent de Paul Thrift Store has reopened!

Our new business hours are 10:00 am to 6:00 pm, Monday through Sunday.

Please Note: just because our brick-and-mortar store has reopened does NOT mean our online ones will close. Our online stores on eBay and Craigslist will continue to be open for business!​

You now have even more ways to shop and support your favorite local thrift store. Thank you for helping us help others!

Small Homes, Big Changes

It was only an idea in January 2021. By February, it was providing temporary shelter and services to the first of up 60 homeless Sonoma County residents at a time.

Thanks to the County of Sonoma and the people, partners, and supporters of St. Vincent de Paul Sonoma County, Los Guilicos Village is a life-changing reality. Check out the great video by the County of Sonoma here.
