Although our Conference and St. Vincent de Paul are not part of the Annunciation Church office facilities, applications and directions are offered there by our staff, at the side entrance of the Activity center. The hours of operation are Thursday 0830-1430. At the Sunday meetings each new application is assigned to a member. Within 48 hours an initial contact and home visit time is arranged with the new client. The recommendation for type of help is determined at the following Sunday meeting. The decision is related to the client by phone that day. Except for emergency situations or significant changes, clients are eligible for assistance on a yearly basis.
