KNOWN is a group of young-adult volunteers that dedicates their Saturday mornings to activities at the St. Vincent de Paul Shelters. By building individual relationships with guests, we seek to affirm the inherent beauty and dignity of each person. While the shelter provides food, clothing, and a safe environment to its guests, our group serves the non-material needs of the guests through simple and consistent accompaniment.
Our name comes from Psalm 139, “Lord… you know me: you know when I sit and stand; you understand my thoughts from afar. You sift through my travels and my rest; with all my ways you are familiar… Lord you know it all.”.
We believe that to love and serve others with genuine goodwill, we must make extraordinary efforts to know them first. Attentive listening and conversation open our eyes to the experiences of the homeless. Through these encounters we hope to grow in compassion and gratitude, learning to love our neighbors in small but profound ways.
