Joseph Schenkel not only has a passion for helping the poor, he’s using his talents and knowledge to help change the trajectory of their lives.
As our board treasurer, Joe, who also volunteers for the St. Vincent de Paul Society - Fort Wayne, is applying his considerable financial expertise and non-profit background to assist in the creation of the St. Joseph Missions Women’s Shelter (SJMWS).
“After serving with the outreach of Catholics on a Mission, I became more aware of the plight of the single woman who finds herself without a home,” says Joe, a husband, father, and grandfather.
Something has to be done to assist single homeless women — and Joe believes the SJMWS can make a life-changing difference in our community.
“St. Joseph Missions will help allow women to start working towards reaching their goals and changing their lives.”
