St. Vincent de Paul District Council of Dayton is comprised of three non-profit 501(c) (3) corporations, each dedicated to serve the poor and homeless of our community.
St. Vincent de Paul Society District Council of Dayton, Ohio, Inc.
The St. Vincent de Paul Society District Council of Dayton, Ohio, Inc. was founded in 1948 and is comprised of 35 Conferences. Thirty-three of them are affiliated with local Catholic parishes. The remaining two Conferences are affiliated with the University of Dayton and Wright State University. The primary purposes of the Conferences are (1) to grow the spirituality of individual members [“Vincentians”]; and (2) to assist neighbors in need of emergency financial or other type of assistance to maintain housing stability. In 2015, Conference members made 7,075 in-person visits to the homes of those in need; donated more than 67,000 hours of volunteer time; provided just over $2 million in emergency and cash assistance; and touched the lives of 115,000 persons in our community.
St. Vincent de Paul Social Services, Inc.
St. Vincent de Paul Social Services, Inc. was created in December 1985 with the stated purpose of providing emergency shelter services to the homeless population of our community. This purpose is primarily achieved through the operation of two shelter facilities and five other housing ministries, including the Safe Haven Program for adult men and women with severe and persistent mental illness, the Supportive Services to Veteran Families (SSVF) Program, the DePaul Center Program which provides two different service models for single men at one site; one that serves men who have short-term barriers to obtaining permanent housing and one that serves those who have diagnosed disabilities, and Kettering Commons which serves families and individuals with diagnosed disabilities. The St. Vincent de Paul Gateway Shelter for Women and Families is a 220-bed, 24-hour-a-day shelter for homeless single women and families. The Gettysburg Gateway for Men is a 238-bed, 24-hour-a-day shelter for homeless single men. Both shelters provide case management services, three meals a day, life skills and other trainings, laundry services, 24/7 security, personal care items, complete bath and shower facilities, and other basic human needs.
These shelter and housing ministries are supported primarily through private donor contributions, philanthropic organizations and federal, state and local government grants.
St. Vincent de Paul Charitable Enterprises, Inc.
St. Vincent de Paul Charitable Enterprises, Inc. was created in May 1982 with the purpose of operating the St. Vincent de Paul Thrift Stores. The mission of the Thrift Stores is to provide, through the St. Vincent de Paul Conferences, clothing, furniture, appliances and other household goods to persons or families in need and to persons exiting our homeless shelters for permanent housing. Revenue over and above operating costs is used for the special charitable works of the organization.
Charitable Enterprises also manages the St. Vincent de Paul Food Pantry. Together with the 11 satellite pantries operated by St. Vincent de Paul Conferences, 60,784 persons (16,841 families) received food assistance in 2015.
