In the lost of my first child, I receive assistance from the Franciscan Diocese who aided in the burial and plot of my precious angel. I could not have been more gracious.

It is truly amazing to see all of the great work that St. Vincent de Paul of Atlanta does. Every time I am in their support center and see the people that are getting the needed help it is inspiring. Everyone that works in the organization has a common goal and works together to achieve their goals.
