Programs

St. Vincent de Paul’s robust roster of programs provides:

Food and nutrition

We have 11 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.

Pharmacy and wellness

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.

Homelessness prevention

Through home visits and our Don and Phyllis Neyer Outreach Center, we provide rent and utility assistance to prevent homelessness and work toward long-term solutions.

Clothing and household

We provide clothing, furniture, and household items to struggling families via our seven thrift stores.

Beds

St. Vincent de Paul provides a mattress, box spring and frames to neighbors who would otherwise be sleeping on the floor through the Bob and Sylvia Rahe Mattress Fund.

Education

Our Ozanam Center for Service Learning instills our communities with long-term change by connecting volunteers from diverse backgrounds to engage in poverty and justice issues in Cincinnati.

Basic needs

Throughout the year, St. Vincent de Paul conducts a number of special drives in partnership with media and corporate sponsors to collect and distribute basic necessities.

A Second Chance

St. Vincent de Paul’s Re-entry program supports returning citizens with a wide range of assistance, including education, volunteer engagement and leadership development, basic needs assistance, and fostering community relationships.
