Founded in 1865, St. Vincent de Paul of Baltimore is an independent non-profit organization whose mission is to ensure those impacted by poverty have the skills and resources to achieve their full potential.
St. Vincent de Paul of Baltimore is a pioneer in the development of social programs and the advocacy of social justice through a wide range of services from meeting basic human needs to empowering people to improve their quality of life, reach their full potential, and care for their families.
We seek to make a measurable, targeted impact by building programs consistent with community needs and service trends under our five service areas: Homelessness and Supportive Housing, Child and Family Services, Workforce Development, Access to Healthy Food, and Emergency Assistance.
“I went to work every day. I dropped my kids off at school. No one would believe we were homeless.” - Tiffany, mother of two
After Tiffany's daughter suffered from a debilitating stroke and she lost her job due to absence to care for her daughter, she and the children became homeless, having to "couch surf" and even sleep in their car.
They turned to Sarah's Hope where they received shelter, basic needs, intensive case management, healthcare services, and educational classes. Nina and Adam participated in activities and homework club, and their unique needs were addressed to reduce the negative impact of being homeless.
The family was housed through our Front Door program and moved into their new home on December 23rd. "It was the best Christmas ever!”
A gift of $55 will help shelter a family in need for one night. A gift of $25 will help provide meals and necessities like clothing, diapers and formula.
This year, we continue to celebrate our 150th Anniversary!
Mayor Stephanie Rawlings-Blake, and other honored guests, joined us to officially open our renovated and expanded Sarah's Hope, Mount Street shelter for homeless families.
