The Society of St. Vincent de Paul of San Mateo County – Domestic Violence Shelter

The Society of St. Vincent de Paul of San Mateo County provides safety net services for families and individuals who are often suffering, forgotten and deprived – the working poor, the homeless, victims of domestic violence, the incarcerated and all people living on the margins.

HIF board member and Corporate Champion Prometheus led this project and their vendors Kelly Moore Paints, BTaylor Painting, Medallion Landscaping and Pro-Floors to help transform a women’s domestic violence shelter and provide a enhanced and beautiful living space for their clients and freeing up critical funding for St. Vincent’s program services. Through Prometheus’s leadership HIF completed the following work scope:


  • Interior and exterior painting
  • Courtyard cleaning and water sealing
  • New flooring in common areas
HIF received the 2020 Society of St. Vincent de Paul Eugene & Edna Palmuth Benefactor Award for this Renovation project. We share this honor with HIF board member Prometheus, Kevin Chisholm, and the Prometheus Porch Program, without whom, this project would not have been possible.
