Thousands of people every day in our community are struggling with hunger, homelessness, and unemployment, and far too many of our children grow up in poverty. They need support, skills, and resources to help them move beyond the challenges of poverty and achieve their full potential.
At St. Vincent de Paul, we believe that everyone has tremendous untapped potential, and should have every opportunity to be their best self. We offer support and stability through meals, shelter, and access to critical services.
We also lead the way in providing innovative services that:
- ensure children have access to fresh and healthy meals,
- help individuals and families obtain and sustain permanent housing,
- train adults for a career that provides a living wage for their family, and
- prepare children for a lifetime of learning, breaking the cycle of intergenerational poverty.
Most importantly, we affirm the dignity of each individual by serving them with respect, compassion, and the belief that everyone should have the opportunity to succeed.
So what can you do to help?
A good first step is to learn more. Together, we can help people in our community move beyond poverty.
