Get Involved

For over 150 years, St. Vincent de Paul - Cincinnati has been joining the hands of those in need to those that are able to help. In Fiscal Year 2018, volunteers gave more than 123,800 hours to reach out a loving hand to a neighbor in need. The outstretched hand may hold a bag of groceries, clothing for a child, assistance with a bill, or the hand of another in prayer.

At St. Vincent de Paul, volunteers are essential to all we do. Everyone has talents and abilities that can be used to help others. Whether you are interested in working directly with our neighbors in need or would prefer behind the scenes opportunities, anyone with a caring heart is invited to join us. Our volunteers are regular people of all ages and walks of life.
