Assistance. Shelter. Hope.

St. Vincent de Paul is the most essential part of our community’s safety net for the homeless and impoverished: we stand between them and almost unimaginable consequences. And we stand behind them as they struggle to reclaim their lives. Without our work – and our respect, dedication, compassion and effectiveness – thousands of lives would be impacted; many would be lost.

St. Vincent de Paul is a faith-based non-profit serving the Greater Dayton Area. We aid the homeless and impoverished by providing emergency shelter, transitional and permanent supportive housing, food, clothing and household items, and guidance to leading a self-sustaining life.

“In 2019, the St. Vincent de Paul food pantries provided groceries to more than 37,245 hungry individuals in our community.”
