Rent and Utilities
Each week, we receive applications seeking assistance with rent and utilities and will set appointments to meet with those clients in-person. Those seeking help must fill out a Request Form for assistance. The form can be filled out in person Monday-Friday from 8:00am to 4:30pm at our West End Outreach Center, online or over the phone by calling 513-421-0602. Due to limited financial resources, not everyone who qualifies will be able to receive assistance. No documentation is needed to apply for assistance.
Please note: St. Vincent de Paul-Cincinnati can only take applications from residents of Hamilton County, OH.
Assistance with furniture is available for those who do not live in an area served by a St. Vincent de Paul conference. We accept the first 50 furniture applications the first Wednesday of each month in person at our Bank St. Outreach Center or by phone at 513-421-0602. Assistance is also available through St. Vincent de Paul conferences for those who live within their boundaries. If you are unsure whether or not you live within a conference boundary, call 513-562-8841. No documentation is needed to apply for assistance.
Please note, we may not be able to provide all the needs of a particular person. All services are provided based upon availability of donations and funds. For more information call us at (513) 421-0602 or email info@SVDPcincinnati.org.
