I will always be grateful for Saint Vincent's home. I was a resident for approximately two to three years in the 80s. Mostly, we would treat each other like an extended family. I graduated 8th grade and made my confirmation there thanks to Tom Dunne, my sponsor and counselor, back then. It's been 35 years, but I remember it like it was yesterday. I will forever be grateful to Saint Vincent's home. Some people might not understand, but I can say without a doubt. Some of my best memories as a juvenile was at Saint Vincent's home and the group home on New Boston Road. (affiliated with S.V. H) while I attended Durfee High.

When I was young (8-9), I had severely violent behavioral problems as a result of brain damage from eastern equine encephelitis. So much so that neither of my parents could manage me at the time and had to look for outside options for both the safety of myself and my younger sister. I spent a year at this school and the staff there helped me to work through most of these issues and violent tendencies. I can say from personal expirience that this school and its staff are trained to handle these type of issues while maintaining the safety of the students and helping them developmentally, educationally, socially, and spiritually. I am glad to see that st. vincent's is still running strong and I would suggest this school to anyone with children who have developmental, behavioral, or other issues that the parents don't feel equiped to handle.
