We are DePaul and This is What We’re Thankful For

We are DePaul and this is what we're thankful for collage

There is always, always, always something to be thankful for.

2013 has been an incredible year for DePaul. From the development of new housing projects to our President, Mark Fuller’s celebration of 35 years at DePaul, to our expansion into a South Carolina, and to our continued commitment to changing lives and creating futures. We have a lot for which to be thankful.

DePaul’s service to the community wouldn’t be possible, though, without the people we serve and our dedicated employees, and we couldn’t be more thankful for our clients, residents, staff, and their families.


This year, we wanted to share what the people at DePaul are thankful for. Many thanks to the employees and the people we serve who contributed!
