In your latest issue…

At almost 70-years old, Noel became homeless. Then, when he’d been on the streets for only a few weeks, the pandemic hit. You can imagine how scary and disorientating it was for poor Noel.   

“I was so worried Covid was going to get me,” says Noel. “I was thinking, if it catches me, it’ll kill me.”


When Noel turned to Depaul, he felt the warmth of your kindness for the first time.


“Knowing someone cared, it helped me to have hope,” says Noel. “It made me think… I can get through this.”

Home sweet home

Noel is one of the more than 500 people you’ve helped escape the heartache of homelessness since the pandemic began.


If you could only talk to him, you would hear for yourself the gratitude in his voice…

 “I feel so much safer here,” he says. “I wake up in the morning, and I say… thank you.”


“I’ll never forget how you changed my life.”

— Noel
