The critical essentials delivered via our network are fueled by these programs
Our direct-to-those-who-need-help-most network of people and places works wonders. But it's only as effective as the programs that help provide the emergency essentials for our neighbors.
VIDEO St. Vincent de Paul's robust roster of programs provides:
We have nine neighborhood-based food pantries where those in need can shop free of charge, as well as a number of emergency food closets which volunteers can use for delivering right to homes
A last resort safety net for those who have no other access to vital medication, the St. Vincent de Paul Charitable Pharmacy is the only one in southwest Ohio dedicated to providing free medication
Through home visits and our Liz Carter Outreach Center, we provide rent and utility expense assistance to prevent homelessness and work towards long-term solutions
We provide clothing, furniture, and household items to struggling families via our nine thrift stores
St. Vincent de Paul provides a mattress, box spring and bed rail set to neighbors who would otherwise be sleeping on the floor through the Bob and Sylvia Rahe Mattress Fund
