  • Our Location

    When Sacred Heart School in Youngstown, PA, closed at the end of the 2006-2007 school year, it did not stand empty long. It became the new home for the Saint Vincent College Prevention Projects, which began serving local schools and communities in 1978. With few modifications, the original classrooms now house offices of the program’s 25 staff members, as well as providing areas for the materials and resources used in the Prevention Projects services.

    The relocation to the school provides greater visibility for the Saint Vincent College Prevention Projects in the local community. The name of the building has remained Sacred Heart School. The mailing address for the Prevention Projects is 300 Fraser Purchase Road, Latrobe, PA 15650.
