Young Adults


What is KNOWN?

Rooted in our relationship with God, KNOWN seeks to provide activities that facilitate an encounter with joy, friendship, hospitality, and Christian solidarity with our guests during their stay at St. Vincent de Paul’s shelter.

Who can volunteer for KNOWN?

KNOWN is created for young adults in the local Dayton community who enjoy sharing their friendship with St. Vincent’s child and women guests through board games, craft projects, indoor and outdoor games and sports, story time, etc.

When is KNOWN?

KNOWN occurs on the second and fourth Saturdays of each month.

A typical schedule:

9 a.m. Training for New Volunteers

10 a.m. Introductions & Prayer

10:30 a.m.  Activity Time with Guests

11:30 a.m. Pizza & Fellowship Time with Volunteers

Where is KNOWN?

KNOWN takes place at the Apple Street Shelter for Women & Families, at the 120 W Apple St. in Dayton.

Why is it called KNOWN?

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.”.
