Playing Well With Others

By Mark Renick on April 14, 2021

I will be honest: It could be because we just moved. We also divided our staff into two groups which is new too. In addition, I am just getting over an assault on my body by the COVID virus with some interesting complications. Somehow these events allow me to see the need to work in a more positive light with all groups who served returning citizens. When life stresses happen (major illness & separation from workers in my case) it can be a time to reflect and assess the direction you have been going for a long period of time.

Two Reentry Locations?

By Mark Renick on March 1, 2021

Two Reentry Locations? St Vincent de Paul Southwest Idaho has split the staff who meet and work with those just released. Why? The main location at 3217 W Overland Rd will see individuals in the first days of release. Good news here: we are now able to link to food from the St Vincent de Paul Southwest Idaho food pantry on the same site (not available before). Now at this location: support for clothing, hygiene kits for day one, food immediately and links to the other valuable resources we have always provided.

MOVING News!

Exciting News! We have outgrown our current office setting! We decided to work closely with our coalition partners and make a change. It seems St. Vincent de Paul Southwest Idaho was in a similar situation. The result is our First Day Out Services will be moving to 3217 W Overland Rd on February 11th. Only those seeking assistance in the first days of their release will be seen here. We will continue to write vouchers for clothing, link them to resources, supply hygiene packets, and support them with personnel who have for the most part lived this experience.

JUST WHY DO WE Pickup individuals from incarceration Day One?

By Mark Renick on January 26, 2021

Rarely are we asked that question, but the answer is vital to the ministry work of our office. First, understand that we pick up individuals from all institutions south of Gowen Field almost daily. Some are early morning pickups going to the Greyhound connection at Flying J on Federal Way in Boise (departures north between 7am & 7:45 daily). Others going West are departures from the Airport via Salt Lake Express which leaves at 8:15am.
