St Vincent is also involved in local housing needs including replacing public housing projects with row homes for families.The parish of Saint Vincent de Paul allow homeless persons to set up camp on their side yard. The most recent project is located on Pratt Street. St. Vincent was an active participant in developing the Heritage Walk, a Baltimore project, and is one of the stops on the tour.
