Special Feature Section: St. Vincent de Paul at Wright State University Tutoring Program

The works on the following three pages come from students in the St. Vincent de Paul at Wright State University (SVdP@WSU) Tutoring Program.


The SVdP@WSU Tutoring Program is a non-profit, volunteer-based program that is focused on engaging children with educational and constructive activities that instill life skills and academic achievement as well as laughter, fun, and excitement. This approach is designed to alleviate the strain of homelessness and provide each child with hope, encouragement, and skills that might one day lead them to a stable home and a productive life.


The tutoring program operates at two locations: the Gateway Shelter on Apple Street in Dayton and a Permanent Supporting Housing Unit in Kettering. The submissions all came from students at the Kettering location. Each student wrote to the following prompt: What does “home” mean to you?


All tutors are volunteers, and donations help drive our success. To help support the tutoring programs, please consider volunteering or donating to the cause. We can be reached at svdpwsu@gmail.com.
